Re: NEED MORE POWER !

A header and bigger exhaust plumbing will de-woosify your 1.3. However, you may have other problems (vaccuum hoses, the dreaded "loss of compression", etc.) that need taking care of. That's my experience...

I dunno about a new carb...

SEARCH THE ARCHIVES!!! There is more information than you can use in a year (unless you are extremely wealthy.)

Re: NEED MORE POWER !

dont forget to check and see if you have the carb vent tube fix. That helps a lot if it hasnt been done yet.

Re: NEED MORE POWER !

You Zuk guys SERIOUSLY need a web page with a FAQ on it. I've been floating around here for a couple months and must have seen 50 threads started on the subject of "how can i get more power from my Zuk?". It hurts me to read it, so i KNOW it hurts you guys to repeat the info every week. It would be great if when somebody asked the "magic question" you could just throw a URL at them. just a thought.......


JEEP, it's what's for dinner.

Re: NEED MORE POWER !

Before you do anything, check your compression. New, a Zuk motor only had 62 HP at 199 PSI compression. If yours is like most, it is down around 150 PSI compression and likely only 40 HP or so. Get your compression numbers and give me a call.
