EA's came in 3.1 and 3.9. The 3.1's didn't sell well at all!

Like 4 cylinder Commodore....

Yeah I think your right that it's a 3.2.
3163.0 would get rounded up...

go to redbook.com.au and it'll tell you weather they were 3.1, 3.2, 3.3.
They're s**t (in my personal opinion) so there's no need to remember exactly what they are, so long as your aware they existed...

As for rare - f**k no - it's an EA, and a crappier one at that!!!

a 3.9 engine for starts, but if your going to do it might aswell go for a 4.0l. maybe even do thermo fan conversion and BBM conversion to. wouldn't be that hard - read the docos should have something for oyu.

Why will it be a classic? Who's going to want a 3.2 donk when in years to come there are still going to be s**t of various EA - AU motors easy to slot straight it.. that's like saying Diana's turds will be classics because she was the only person ever to drop them... it's still a turd though!
