Carina Sightings: Carina AA63 4AGZE Supercharged Sedan

Some time ago I came across a gallery on photos.yahoo.co.jp with this very nice supercharged Carina GTR sedan:

Unfortunately there is not much info within this gallery, so we can only do guesswork here!

At least the car got a really nice old school Toyota decal on the bonnet! I still can’t understand why Toyota swapped this logo for the current one: it looks much better than the old one! (Of course I do know why… 😉 )

Nice lip! I still need to mount mine, so I hope mine will look just as great as this one! 😉

The stance of this Carina is just perfect: lowered just enough with just enough camber on the front! (rear goes automatically with lowering)

The car is pretty beaten up so I recon it is being used/abused often:

And it is also very rusted:

I think this describes the state of the body pretty much.

But this makes everything right I guess:

The 4AGZE supercharger swap should be quite streightforward, just like on the AE86: supercharger flow is rerouted to the front and pushes the air through the front mounted intercooler.

There is no cage installed so it wasn’t used as a track or drift car, so this car should have seen a lot of action on the roads instead. Could be a touge drifter or maybe a drag racer?

Eventough this Carina is probably rusted through badly I would swap it for mine anytime! 😉

  1. Thanks! 🙂
    But for that price alone without shipping to Europe I can purchase a 4AGZE and gearbox myself and have someone do the conversion for me…

  2. For sure, I see a lot of cars on Yahoo auctions, but when you add shipping to Europe in (I am UK based) it doesn’t make sense to get them here..

  3. SETTING UP A 4AGZE FOR RWD USAGE UNLESS YOU HAVE AN MR2 IS NO EASY TASK TRUST ME IM 2 YEARS INTO MY BUILD & STILL NOT DRIVING IT

  4. I’ve seen a couple of swaps done in the AE86 and most of it was quite straight forward if you how. Only tricky parts were the waterpump (take one from your old bluetop), waterlines (reroute them) and mating the 4AGZE loom with the loom of the AE86 (we have a specialist for that in Holland).

    Then again: I was calling the 4AGZE swap straight forward because I’ve seen many many other swaps (3SGE/F20C/etc) which are much harder to do and require a lot more changes to the car than this one. 😉
