The second video is a bit over exposed, but at least by listening to the sound of it you will loooove this 1G-GTE powered Carina!
As you can see the 1G is a tight fit.
The 1G-GTE produced at maximum a mere 210hp, but the 275 Nm makes it all worth! Read the rest of this entry →

Noriyaro posted some amazing pictures again! This time of a typically 80s boxy Toyota Chaser JZX71:
Boxy 80s Toyota Chaser JZX71 drifting
I do not agree with him that the car is bosozoku, it is more kyusha kai than bosozoku: it is lowered and it got stretched tires around deep dished rims. No further bosozoku styling (like ridiculous body modifications) or what so ever.
If you’re interested in all pictures of the Chaser, you can find them in this posting on the Noriyaru site:

July 23, 2008 in Carina tuning
Found this Carina with a 1JZ-GTE engine (JDM Supra MkIII/Soarer MkII) in it:
From what I can see on the grille this is a ST model, so it either featured a 1S or 3A originally.
Too bad there is not more footage of this engine swap. Would have been very interesting in what they actually had to change for this!
