I have an 88 Suzuki Samari, forest green, with hard top. I bought it so my girlfriend could have something to drive while I rebuild her chrevrolet cavalier engine. I traded my 76 Chevy 4X4 in it was to big or to hard for her to drive here in St. Louis. So, now I am personalizing the suzuki up to my liking. The funny thing is I am driving the suzuki more than her, she is driving my 89 nissan 4X4. My biggest problem with the suzuki is I can't get it to do more than 55 on the highway, so I m redoing the carburator.

Re: Newbie

Do you know if the vent tube on your carb was ever updated? if it was you should be able to tell if lift off the breather and there will be a small 1/4 in vent tube in the carb in front.This modhelped update factory carb sluggishness.It helps a little in overall power!I had to put one in mine when I first got it.

Re: Newbie

Check to see if you have the "air tube" fix for the carb. If not, it is available from several venders like Petroworks and RRO. It will mostly cure the stumble/dead spot at 55 mph.
