Should I get a bigger carb?
 
Like I posted a little earlier, I got a free 225. They also had an aluminum 4 barrel intake. Should I put that on my 225 and get a bigger carb or wouldnt that be very beneficial if the engine isnt built? I was told on the jeepster board that if I put an adapter for a 2 barrel on the 4 barrel intake that I would get more low end torque. Why exactly is that? Thanks

you will get more low end torque than with the factory manifold because of the new intake design but unless you are gonna rebuild it with a better cam and better exhaust than just stick with the stock set up much more reliable

I have headers but I dont have a cam. So by the sound of it I should probably just wait till I get the $$ and go with a rebuild on the extra engine I got. Is it pretty much the same senario with the 4 barrel?

dont put the 4barrell on till the motor is rebuilt old engines dont handle changes like that well
