Carina Sightings: Rare 3S-GE powered TA63
May 2, 2012 in carina sightings
Apparently this year I was the only one with a RWD Carina at the Japanese Autosport Festival, so time to take a small break with a regular!
3S-GE always makes me hope for a blacktop beams swap, but this one has been fitted with a first generation 3S-GE:
Still the original first gen 3G-GE 160hp (186Nm torque) engine should be very capable for replacing the original 3T-GTE and this one even has been rebuilt with oversized pistons, a light head skim of 1mm and fitted with a set of ITBs.
The only problem with it: its price is $9000 AUD ($9300 USD) and this 1985 Carina is located in Queensland Australia, so keep on dreaming if you are from anywhere outside the southern hemisphere!
