Carina Sightings: Turbo diesel Carina ice racing

March 25, 2009 in carina sightings by banpei

This Carina was posted two weeks back on Youtube:

This Carina is doing some ice racing and it is doing some sideways action along the way. In this case it is not that good: the car gets passed easily with the competition all being FWD cars.

According to the video this Carina features a Turbo Diesel engine. The Carina A6 never had a Turbo Diesel engine so it must be a transplanted engine. The video shows that the Turbo is from a Volvo 940, but no idea if the engine is from the 940. Also the Turbo is on the wrong way for the Carina, so either the exhaust could not be used and therefore it now features this nice “tractor” like exhaust pipe or they rerouted the exhaust pipe to the intake manifold and bolted the turbo right on it!

Edit: I got a reply from one of the owners/drivers, the engine is the 1C diesel with a 940 turbo on top of it! ;)

It kind of reminded me of this Carina I posted a long long time ago:

The color is different so it can’t be the same car but nice to see several people coming up with the same solution! :)
