Re: Thank you Thank you...
I would highly recommend the Pony Carb for anyone looking for a bit more zip. With my stocker, i struggled up hills, and could never get in 5th gear.60 mph was quite an accomplishment. With the Pony, it is much more responsive and really kicks in at @ 4K, and wind it up to 5K, and your flyin. I know alot of folks have done the 1.6 swap, and Im sure its great- i even considered it at one point. But I would suggest a Pony, a Thorley and maybe a cam- this is plenty fast for me. And a heck of alot easier. The install is pretty straightforward- the hardest part i had was to get the stocker off with out stripping the the carb bolts. Fortunately I had a little help (i.e. Glenn!) and once everything was off, it bolted right up. The carb i have was purchased from Tim J in Tennessee, so it did not require any rebuild, or special mods- literally was plug n play. Alex in Canada sells these for around 100 ( I think) and you have to rebuild them, but he has detailed instructions on his web site as well as some on izook. I now get to drive like a Bostonian should!! Outta my way jerky!!
