EA82/EA81 parts swap?

    Hey all... I've got access to an old carb'd EA-82 from an '86 GL
    wagon. My '85 GL hatch with an EA-81 could use a little extra pep, but
    from the sounds of it, the frame's not wide enough for a true engine swap.
    Any thoughts on swapping parts (carb, intake manifold, distributor come to
    mind) for increased performance? How about economy? I'd actually like to
    retrofit an ECU and SPFI to the EA-81, but don't have a donor car for
    that. Any thoughts?

    Thanks,
    -Cory

    I agree with Ed about visiting the Ultimate Subaru message board. One
    of the changes they will probably recommend is putting on a Weber
    carburetor.
