    Here is an ad from 1981-1983 for HKS Camshafts which is an after market distributor of performance products. Depending on popularity, limited numbers of that particular series were sold or a hidden treasure if found in any vehicle that had been modified during the 3TG's limited production run. The Unicorn cam series.

    This information was new then and may or may not apply to todays performance standards. Remember that the 2tg camshafts fit that particular head, except for the distributor drive gear. Cams can be re-ground to what ever duration the user request.

    3TG


    2TG


    Compare the two engine series and note the differences. This is not a major question for folks who own this engine. Sourcing ignition parts is harder to find then the after market camshafts. Good Luck in your search.

    The engines are from a Japan production TA63 Carina, 1983 model. Vin numbers start with TA63-ACMQZ or TA63-AEMQZ both for manual models. Cams don't know, you may have to get yours reground which involves building lobes up with weld which is why most places charge about $560 pair.
