down grading an EA82T

Recommended Posts

Is it possible (easy) to take out an EA82T and replace it with an EA82 carbed motor? I am just wonder what would have to be done. I am just sick of the electronis in my 87 turbo wagon. I want something simple and reliable. Thanks.

I know Miles Fox has done this also. Not sure what year engine he used, but it was a carbed one. Thinking it's the Wagon that he's been driving lately. Not sure if he swapped back to the Turbo engine, yet...

The reason I am not doing an EJ swap is Money. I can get a carbed motor cheap, it will bolt right up to my D/R tranny, and they are a dime a dozen in the junk yards. EJ's and MPFI engines are not.

 

 

So I guess it is a little more complicated than just dropping it in, changine the fuel pump/exhaust, and wireing up the coil/alt?
