no more BBD. Best place $ to get Webber 32/36?

I am tired of the BBD on my 87 4.2L Wrangler. I made my mind to get the Webber.

Please let me know the best place and price to order one. What is a reasonable price to pay for the whole kit ready to install?

Thanks a lot. GH

Today, I installed a Weber K551 kit (Weber 32/36 carb.) on my 87 Wrangler. What a difference! The BBD is now destined to be an anchor for my boat. Ah shoot, its not even good as an anchor!!!
I got mine from Performance Parts Warehouse in New York. Phone is 1-800-654-2778. You can print an order form from their Website at www.webercarburator.com. The K551 was $349.95 and the shipping is included.
Maybe if we welded your BBD and my BBD together...nah.
Good luck with it.

Thanks for the info. Did you get a complete Kit for that price? or just the carb? I am specially worried about the air filter & assembly. Or does the stock assembly work?
What about the adapter, throttle linkage etc.? Please let me know.

Other places with a better price than U$ 349

The K551 includes a K&N air filter, air box, fittings, hoses for the PCV, fuel line, adapter plates,gaskets, bolts, linkage, etc. It is a conversion kit so it has everything you will need to replace the BBD except the wrenches.
It is easy to install and mine purred like a kitten with NO ADJUSTMENTS.
The best price I have seen is $349.95 with free shipping at Performance Parts Warehouse.
You will be amazed at how well your 258 can idle.
