Which Weber install?
The one where you mill off the intake logs, machine the heads, and then blot on new manifolds?
The last time I remember hearing anyone discuss that set-up, someone chimed in and stated that the cost to do the machine work, combined with the current cost of the Webers, could buy you a pretty nice Port Fuel Injection System!

Can end this discussion with a quick question.
What is your budget for this conversion ?
The Porsche style Weber 3 BBl carbs, alone, for the response above start at $4K
For a nice ready to use pair.
Check Evilbay and then let us know.

I had a 40 DCOE sidedraft Weber on my 180 hp turbo engine. I am modifying the setup now to delete the Weber draw thru from the turbo & blow thru the 4 140 carbs. Anything I can help you with ?
