    The old stocl carby finally died

    Well on my old 1982 4x4 D-50 the old stocker died at 568'000 miles so instead of rebuilding it we do what every hot rodder does... Throw a holly at it! no not some little 2bbl either. A 750 CFM vacuum secondary 4bbl! How does a 2.6 take that much carb? i just ell people its a mitsu it loves it Click image for larger version.

    Its of course a custom adaptor that we fab'd up with a piece of solid aluminum that is slightly larger than the holly base. and using the stock spacer o the bottom side. ill try to dig up some pics. if not when i need to build the carbby ill take some. not bad for a 17 y/o project with his dad

    Am I reading that right - 568,000 miles? Hell dude, that truck has done some serious work. How is the 5G54 handling the Holley? That is a lot of carby for a 2.6 (even if it is Mitsubishi's big block Hemi 4). you've done the carby install, so what else have you and your Dad got planned for D-50?

    We want to see some more pics of that Holley mod here. Don't think you can dangle something like that in front of everyone and not give us more info, are you crazy.

    I would luv to hear that on a full throttle quad barrels open. Baaaawooooooooooooo!

    I think geezer meant G54B, Mitsubishi never made a 5 cylinder...unless they sent one to Australia as a joke or something, lol..

    Typo lololololol It's the Europeans with their weird 5 cylinder engines. We got cars that had driver's doors fitted on the wrong side and toilets that flush in the opposite direction...

    I have seen the 4 bbl carb mod done before - a while back a caravan manifold modded for a holley carb was for sale on ebay - the adaptor was welded in with a lot of rework. Still would like more on this - a 390 holley would work much better size wise...
