Sure.. with enough work, anything will fit.

To clarify, are you trying to get just the turbo from the EJ20 onto an EA82T?


Maybe something like this

That is a TD04 13G off of a 2003 USDM WRX mounted to an EA82T crossover pipe. Its in my garage awaiting completion of a new motor to bolt it on to.

Its not a direct fit, requires some fabrication. But it can be done.

after a bit of thought, what i really want is just a more powerful turbo for the ea82t, dun have to be the ej20 necessarily, that just happened to be the one i read about someone else having, what turbo would give me the biggest boost in power? and what do they cost? also how safe?

hmmm....looking at that pic...i'm a bit confused, prolly because i have never had a turbo engine or really looked at one in real detail, from what you said and that pic showed it looked like the turbo connects to the exhaust??? and is that the only fabrication that has to be done is to the exhaust?? i'm not sure how the turbo connects to the motor....do i have to rig something up for that or do all turbos connect to the heads the same??

The WRX turbo is probably the easiest upgrade.. A lot of factors come into play.

1) How ready is your motor for higher boost (what other mods do you have that will support a bigger turbo)
2) What kind of fabrication skills do you have
3) How much money do you want to spend

There is no 'bolt on bigger turbo' for your car. It all takes work and money. If you want to go faster and don't have a way to get the work done, get a boost controller off eBay and raise the boost on your stock turbo a little.. Get a boost gauge first.

Everything you do is at your own risk. Beware that given the age of your car, even the slightest increase in boost could result in a blown head gasket

nodnod, thanx for the help, as of now i don't have a turbo, i have an 85 GL wagon non-turbo with a webber. But i can easily pick up a turbo wagon cheap, what would i have to do to the engine other then aftermarket head gasket to make it so it can handle the power the wrx turbo will add? also, how much hp do you think an ea82t with the wrx's turbo and intercooler have?

I don't have much money at all really, i can fabricate all day if it'll save me some money....the TD04 13G came from a 3000gt? i just looked up the wrx turbo on ebay and they look expensive, i looked up the TD04 13G and theres one for $102 (Much closer to what i'm looking to spend on a turbo considering what i'll prolly spend tunning and upgrading the motor so it can handle the turbo) anyhoo, if the TD04 13G will give about the same power as the wrx turbo at a fraction of the cost and twice the work it's still the way i wanna go because i'm pretty tight on cash....BUT i don't want to throw something together too cheap and it be a disappointment in the end....though i think any turbo gl will be faster then my non-turbo...

You're in shelton?

Turbowagons are abundant around there. Mine came from Olympia

Don't know how much HP the bigger turbo and IC will net. A lot depends on how much boost you intend to run.

Currently I am running an RX7 TMIC, Stock turbo at ~12PSI.. Motor got tired after around 200k, so I have pulled it and am building a new one.

Within the next few weeks, it will have an 8.5:1 compression EA82T with WRX TD04 13G turbo, WRC turbo back 2.5 inch exhaust, XT6 suspension with 16 inch wheels, and WRX coilovers. Plus a blitz DCII turbo timer.

Don't know how much of a power increase the engine mods will bring.. WIll find out shortly though.


I have all the stuff, I just need to put it together. Then I need to find an excuse to drive it wo Washington.

And ya just never know when I might show up in Wa.. My dad works in shelton.. My mom is in Olympia... I spent 27 years in Tacoma/Puyallup

As far as cost goes.. I will have a tally sheet put together when its back on the road. This is actually round 2 of the modification process.. I will break it down as best as I can when its all over.. then it will be time to start saving for round 3
