RE: [T3] FI vs Carburetion.

You should add that the automatic transmission cars use an electrically
heated AAR and these are not as hearty as their manual tranny counterparts.
Note that a Type 3 (automatic) and a Type 4 (manual/automatic, they use the
same AAR) use essentially the same unit so one can be swapped for the other.
The only difference is the angle of the input/output pipes.  Typically the
heating element parts will fail and it's not a simple fix.
