you don't know much about camira's buddy!!!!!!!!!!!!

A stock 5spd JE Model Camira with the 2l Opal engine, (85kw@5200rpm, 176nm/3200rpm). It will do a quarter mile in a flat 16 sec. I have seen them getting in high 15's with pod and extractors & sports exhaust.

A good 5sp, JE camira with an 85kw opal engine would probably pants most e-series cars on these forums unless they can do the quarter in under 16 sec!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

The 5spd are geared really well and will nearly pull 100km/hr in 2nd, huge torque steer every time you let them rip through the gears.

Power to weight ratio can sometimes make a small car go very quick!!!!!!!!!!


Excuse me sir, are you from the past?



it can be fast and cheap,but it wont be reliable

Time for this one to get a second lease on life. So the 3.2 made 75 percent of the power and torque of the equivalent 3.9 TBI. The interesting thing about it is the fact it's oversquare, not undersquare. Try as I might, I can't find the maximum RPM. Despite being oversquare, it has the same torque peak at 3250rpm.
Surely it would've had different rev characteristics to the 3.9? Aren't undersquare motors more suitable for higher revs?
