larry, did the larger airfilter make any difference besides being much cooler than the little air filter. I just ordered a new air filter kit last week. wish I'd seen your site first.

On another note has anyone seen the reject kit at http://www.racetep.com/weber.html It is a kit for the 32/26 I am thinking about getting it at $35 bucks just to see if it makes a difference. I have never re jetted a carb though.

Thanks for the info Larry and Brent. I've been pretty disappointed by the way my Weber looses gas from the float bowl when it sits a couple of days. I think it's leaking internally and going down the intake manifold, as I can smell gas from the throat of the carb even after a couple of days. I've been thinking of buying a rebuild kit and going over it, although it is brand new. Maybe I can get what I need from one of these places.

Brent...

I dont run a Weber as both of my Jeeps are fuel-injected. As a past Howell EFI owner I can associate with the plight of Weber owners and just thought I'd pass the info on.

Not my website either.

As for flowing more air with the larger filter...I dont think the Weber 38 deg 400cfm carb could possibly suck more air than that K&N will allow through. I have a snokel on my Jeep, but when I got the Weber it wouldn't mount up to the snorkel. My boss also works as a Machine shop, and if he can't make some sort of adapter, I'm sure the local high-school metal-working teacher can do it with the appropriate pay-off. I use a K&N filter at the top of the snorkel that has a "Velocity Stack" engineered into it so it can shove a lot of nice cold clean air down the 2.5" tube. A 3" tube with no bends will flow 1000cfm, so I'm sure a 2.5" tube twisted almost like a pretzle should flow 400.../wwwthreads_images/icons/shocked.gif
