    After doing some looking I found that the stock carb on a 1.9l is a offshoot of a Weber 26/27 or Weber 32/34, Not sure witch.
    This has me wondering has anyone tried a Weber 32/36 on a 1.9l? It looks like the same bolt pattern and everything and form what I know its a much better carb.

    well well well. if you really looking for performance get your self a intake cut the runners off and fabricate a adapter to install 4 carbs off a GSXR 1100 race bike. I had this setup in 1990 and it performed great and sounded like nothing else.

    I have not tried the weber since they are very expensive none can be found for under 300$ CND


    if you go with the GSX-R carbs and tune them real good you won't regret it.

    Well, that is a grate idea and I thought about something like that.
    But given my welding skills if I made a custom intake it would look like crap. I really want to car to look nice as it will be both for show and go. And just not all go.
    I'll likely do something like you suggested on my rusty 87.

    It should work... you will probably delete a few OEM wires and hoses. You might have to make up your own throttle linkage and fuel line since OEM carbs often had these in different locations.

    I recently put one of these carbs on my old B2200 pickup and it runs great after a bit of tuning, as it was a used carb.

    That was my thought, adding porting the manifold to fit the bigger ports in a Weber 32/26 or 38.
    If I don't end up putting the super charger on my car I may end up getting a Weber 40mm intake from the UK or making something out of the pile of HO intakes I have.
