    I think I'm gonna run a open air filter on stock carb....runs like a champ now

    so for the past week I've been chasing a hestitation and bogging under load at 1/2 to full throttle, and I read somewhere to go for a ride without the air filter or air filter case top on at all, and it ran like a champ, great throttle response and everything

    so I'm thinking I'm just gonna run a filter with a top pan and bottom pan and have the sides of filter open......

    if no light comes on I guess I"m good right?

    I'd love to eliminate smog and keep the stock carb but don't know what to pull and what I'd need to keep, I've read I should just need to keep distributor and brake boost vac lines and the rest can go...but that's a bit of a gamble, especially now that its running good

    any thoughts on the open sided filter on stock carb? if it works...it works right?

    Must be something wrong if it runs better without the top of air filter or what not. Should run pretty decent with or without, unless you live at 10,000foot level. Anyway, put your stock carb on ebay and shine it up and that will get you at least half the money for a weber. Then go sneak into GF's purse and grab the rest. You'll be much happier with a weber I'm, sure. We have heard nothing but great reviews here when any member makes the change over. I think even a few of their girlfriends even wrote in thanking us for the suggestion since it made the guys so happy that they talked to their girls longer after sex instead of falling asleep right afterword. Go figure!

    not approved for CA - see Camoits thread on how to resolve the emissions issue - then you can run the weber.
