Ok,so I dont have one

Allright,why are the weber carbs so popular?Is it performance reasons and let me know why this swap is needed if the stock carb is fine.Anything to make mine better!But I doubt if mine will ever be "tops",but heading in the right direction.

Re: Ok,so I dont have one

Power increase immediatly noticed. But to do it right you have to smooth out the intake so the transition from the big car to the small itake is not so dramatic. Also you need to rejet the carb and lower the float, and install a regulator if your using it off-road.
Idle is better and take off power is better. I am not unhappy with the conversion.

Re: Ok,so I dont have one

I have run 3 different stock carbs on my '87 and had problems with all of them. I could not get the fuel mixture lean enough. I changed the oxygen sensor and swapped out several of the other sensors and never could get it to run right on a consistent basis. I have an '88.5 with the original stock carb that is characteristically sluggish like most of them, but I've never had a problem out of it at all. I finally broke down and bought a Weber conversion for the '87 about a month ago. The difference it made in the amount of power and ACCELLERATION is remarkable. I got the conversion kit with the stock air cleaner adapter through Performance Warehouse for $299.95 with free shipping. (they just went up from $249.95 recently)The kit with the chrome air cleaner and bigger jets is suppoosed to make even more of a difference, but I can't imagine how. It's the best money I've spent on it as far as performance is concerned. The difference in top end speed is not THAT dramatic compared to a stock carb in good condition, but the amount of time it takes to reach it is. I already had 2" exhaust with no cat and an aftermarket muffler. I'm not a rock crawler and we don't have mountains in lower Arkansas so I don't have any concerns with it stalling out on steep inclines.
