Default running gear

am thinking about buying a ea82 turbo wagon, but i currently have a ea82 carby and i know that the gear box clutch and 4wd running gear fistly isnt constand 4wd and is rather fragile and i wondered if anyone knows how long the standard gear would last and how much it would cost me to change the running gear for either wrx or legacy running gear???

First, unless you are already experiencing some problems, the EA82T trans and such isn't fragile.. it can take quite a beating.

Second, are you asking about putting in a WRX motor/trans/diff combo, or just the trans because you want AWD? If you are talking about the just the trans, there are Fulltime 4WD gearboxes available for the EA82. That would be a much easier swap than going through the trouble of making an adapter plate and all that. I have the fulltime 4wd in my 87 EA82 TurboWagon.. so they are out there.

and finally, if you are after a complete drivetrain swap with the EJ20G, AWD trans and matching rear diff, check out www.ausubaru.com . A number of those boys have done the swap and will probably be able to brek it down for you.. Plus they are in your neck of the woods.

The FT4WD box for the EA82 is definitely not going to take a **** on a regular basis. and its a lot easier than swapping in the EJ trans.

My FT4WD trans has almost 200k miles on it.. still going strong. The EA82 just doesn't push enough power to blow it up. And those boxes are in no way fragile.

the rx and the xt6 have full time 4wd with diff lock. when the diff is locked its like regular 4wd. unlocked you can drive on pavement with power to BOTH the front and rear. they will bolt up the same.

the rx has dual range, so u can use lo-range on the street!





you will have to use 25 spline axles for the full time tranny. doj from later models will swap on 3spd sauto turbo's axles(ea82) to get 25 splines out of a 23 spline turbo axle
