That is so cool!
I... haven’t really heard of that? Cleaning sure, which I guess can involve a disassembly/reassembly process. But that’s more if you’re not using them often and they’re getting gummed up with old fuel.
Ugh, I need to do something like this.
what can I say, sex sells!
Evan did a great job on the car, for sure.
Cost - the carbys don’t require an ECU swap or dyno tuning!
slurpin’ that air down!
oooof, that’d be dope
You can! ITBs tend to get bought and sold a lot here as people get halfway through the project and give up.
Yeah, tuning and money.
This carb and mani set up were already tuned for a Miata and cost less than $1500 AUD second hand.
ITBs would have been similar for the throttle bodies themselves, and maybe even a mani, but then you need an ECU ($500-1500) and tuning on a dyno ($500+), plus some sort of TPS or MAP solution as…
yeah, not bad. Not sure how much longer I’ll hang on to it, but she still runs and the radio works :)
That doesn’t look too bad in your application! I had a FUSION unit in my Feroza which was similarly discreet and I didn’t hate it too much.
It also had that horrible encoder problem though. Give me buttons, or, ideally, a proper analog knob. WAY better.
