Thanks, my XT is my baby.
When I first did the swap on the Rx people always made the comment "one HG problem for a newer one" and kinda shunned me on the old school board. My opinion is that they are great motors that can be had really cheap. The 165 hp vs the 1.8Ts 115 is a HUGE difference, the car went from a high 18 second car to a low 15 second car.
On top of that it got +30 MPG when driven nicely and had lots of fun in the weather with it's new found low end grunt. The EA82T is junk, old, underpowered, unreliable junk. Makes the problematic EJ25 look like a star.
