The car rides like ass since the previous owners in Japan had cut the springs and the shocks are blown out. Today my friend will help me make some custom coilovers for the front. I will update with pictures later today on how well it goes

Welcome! Wave
A Carina in the US? Wow! I've only seen another one in a video so far... So you have something very special. Wink
And your car looks stunning! Absolutely a great looker! Did you import it yourself, or was it imported already?
Also a question about the lip: do you have any idea who manufactured it?

BTW: your grille reads ST efi, the badges on the side are red and you say it is a TA63. Meaning either your car is a 1.8 ST model with the 3T-EU (early TA63) engine where the side trim got swapped, or a GT-TR model with the 3T-GTEU engine (also a TA63) with the grille swapped for the ST item (or only the ST badge). Any idea which one it is? Tongue
(sorry for the bombardment of questions... Tongue)

It has a 3TEU Engine. The car was imported by a shop and the car came with the lip so i have no details on the lip at all.
Do you happen to have the link to that video because i would like to see it lol. I saw another one for sale not too far from where I live and it is the GT-TR model but it looks a lot rougher than mine

Thanks for the info! Well, I'll just have to keep looking for another lip then...

I know this one is in the US:
