I think a local exhaust place could make you up something for cheaper than the iPd exhaust. I can't remember what size it is, but n/a I think you'd be silly to go bigger than 2.5-2.75 inches.

Yes, for n/a you don't need more than 60mm exhaust with free flow mufflers...and yes I too believe that you can make a deal with local exhaust shop that will be cheaper than IPD...

Local shop wanted a decent amount. Prolly will go IPD cause its less hassle for me. But we will see.

On another note, I got some sway bars (25/22) and installed them (thanks OldSchoolEuro)
It's a completely different car! SO much less body roll and tightned up the steering a lot!
I like it so far, but now it has kickstarted my quest for more corner carving capabalities!

No, that was pure dick. He wasnt aware that he was making this car for you. He has since been corrected (by you) and will run all future endeavors by you for approval.

Sometimes the truth hurts.
With everyone telling him how great it was and blowing smoke up his arse I felt someone needed to be honest and decided I'd be that person.
I guess tuff love isn't for everyone...

Hey, I'm damn glad he pointed me to his thread!

I've been debating going with a carb/carbs in the '76 I'm restoring. Apparently some people simply can't appreciate not everyone wants the same thing?

I want the lack of wiring, lack of computers. Yes, a carb itself is complicated, but with a mechanical fuel pump, it'll eliminate a ton of wiring in the car. There's also the much cheaper factor. DCOE's would be a dream, but I can do a single carb for probably a tenth of the price if I do it right.

It's nice to see someone else can appreciate the same things!

Been a loong time since I have updated this. Just got the car running on MS1 2.2. The carb was cool, but impractical and only really ran well at WOT. More to come, I have tuning and interior reassembly to do now.

I went ahead and yanked what seemed like 100 lbs of nonworking crap from the dash. That heater/blower unit is heavy!

what kind of carb is it? where can I get one? do you still have yours? for sale? I recently got the same intake manifold you have, but no carb. The strombergs 1982-4 240's have in canada really suck. recently got my 3rd car with that carb and 3 for 3, it runs so rich it's barely running.

EDIT: oops never mind, I went back to the start of the thread and saw it was modified/welded. mine is a stock downdraught single barrel penta manifold.

Well the carb is a Weber 38/38. Which may or may not be too much carb for the motor, at least without some good breathing capabilities. I was never able to get it to not have some pretty serious lean/rich spikes. (Wideband o2 let me know that)
But the thing did run pretty reliably and would start everytime.

It may be for sale, possibly along with the modified manifold that works pretty well.
