anyone know where to source high-performance EA81 parts?

Post by flat4x4onthefloor » Wed Sep 16, 2009 9:15 pm

Got myself a '84 BRAT GL with 147k on the clock, and I'm wanting to build a high-output EA 81 for it ...but I'm having a hard time finding some things, and hoping someone here can suggest sources for parts !
I plan on using pistons from a SPFI EA82 to bump my compression ratio up some...and I already have the heads taken care of...had them ported & polished, installed larger valves, heavier springs, titanium keepers, and took .030" off their faces. [smilie=666.gif]
I got the stuff for my heads @ PAECO here in Birmingham,AL....though what they can supply is limited to (some) of the engine internals, i.e. :s.s. valves, copper head gaskets, ect...

Anyone here know where I can get a hi-perf. grind cam, a Weber carb, and any other items (or tips + tricks) that I can use to push my little N/A Boxer to 100+ hp? :?:

i like the way your brat looks i also am trying to find aftermarket support for the brat engine with no luck. i want to build a brat rally car but i;m afraid that my only option is to replace the engine with a newer suby engine with more aftermarket support
