Re: Anyone use stock carb with Sumo 2 head?
I've got the GTI shortblock and the Sumo II head with the stock carb. I've got an intake modified for performance for my weber project (just about complete, I'll have pictures). I have found the stock carb to do well up to about 6000rpm, then the power dies off (I think it'll go lean, I'm not going to press it till the weber). I have about 9.5~10.X compression with this setup. For a break in, I'd say if you have a GOOOOOOD running stock carb, run it for 2k miles and then go for a weber. I'll have to get back to you on how my weber and sumo 2 setup goes..
A stock carb will work, great power compared to a stock engine w/header + 2" running on 3 cylinders! Good running stock vs stock carb w/sumo ii, I don't know how they will compare....
