Re: Need new carb, advice?

hmmm... Jsut researching, I guess the weber would be the easiest and cheapest replacement, anyone use this carb?
Looking at 4wd hardware, they have two available, they look the exact same as far as specifications go, but one is 100 dollars cheaper.. whats the deal with that?

If anyone has does this mod, how easy was installation, and was it worth the dollars?
Thanks!

Re: Need new carb, advice?

I would recheck the 4wd Hardware prices and models, usually they have the 38DGV and the 32/36 DGEV and a few other model kits that fit different Jeep engine combinations. From what I understand you usually want the 32/36 for most 258ci unless you have some flow improvements like a cam, etc. I will post a couple pages that I've found for prices and install instructions over the last few weeks - I'm going to be doing the install myself this weekend if the weather permits on my CJ7 258. Do your homework and ask around about this stuff - it pays big dividends in time and money.

Ben, here's a site where the Weber K551 Conversion kit is $359.00. http://www.racetep.com/xmasspecials.html#web

It's Top End Performance. I purchased a Weber from them in March and it runs great. However, how do you intend to pass the California emission test? I don't think you'll get past the visible test.

Re: Need new carb, advice?

That one looks pretty good - the one you found has the adapter needed to keep your stock air cleaner for visual vehicle inspections. All should be around $359.00/$369.00 for the weber kits. As for passing emmissions, I don't know much about the California stuff... Below is another adapter that will hold your stock air filter(someone posted it for me a few weeks back).
