legacy 1.8L 16valve into EA82 bolt patter??

Recommended Posts

hi, anyone know if the bolt pattern is the same for the EA82T and the 16valve injection 1.8L legacy engine? In fact does anyone know if the 1.8L 16 valve fuel injected engine is an EA82 block as I've never heard of ??EJ18??

 

thanks for any info

no. Make an adapter plate out of aluminum. 1/2" thick. Use redrilled EA flywheel with EA clutch assembly. Everything lines up. Do a search. Good Luck. Wiring is the bear.

thanks -sounds do-able one way or another. shame it involves drilling and plate making but not the end of the world :)

FHI made carburetted ej18s as well if, they're available in UK...unless your heart is set on EFI

 

thanks for pointing this out and I've now found a carburetted 1.8 legacy engine so should be in for a much easier wiring experience!

 

.....so am I right in thinking that the ej18 is the same bolt pattern/flywheel as all the other ejs 2L up to 3.5L but that the EA82 OHC is different and so is the EA81 OHV?

 

thanks again - you guys have saved me a potential wiring nightmaire -having already encountered one I'm very happy to avoid another!

all EJ motors are the same boltpattern but somedifferences in clutch /flywheel that are easily mixed and matched to work. I have never heard of a 3.5, you mean the EJ33?

if your puttin in a motor, goin with a carb is not the coolest thing.

 

wiring an efi motor is no big deal.

 

I know it shouldnt be a big deal and I thought if I put my mind to it I would be able to do it but all the wires and all the plugs on the EA82T that I have are confusing me -especially because I dont seem to be able to find a wiring diagram that matches properly -probably because I'm using an ecu and from a different year to the motor -I think I will post a seperate thread asking for help with this.

 

as for the ej18 carb - I found a good priced motor and got it so for my next project I will probably go that way -but you never know if I manage to sort the EFI control out on the EA82T then I may go to EFI on the EJ engine too -could always sell the EJ18 on.
