    upgrading the weber 32/36 carb

    i have a build thread in the 2nd gen section and have run into a snag. i don't have the money to do my throttle body conversion right now and am wondering; what jetting would be good for the weber 32/36 card on a 2.6 bored .020 over and fully balanced?

    I would start with the stock jetting and see how she runs. Perhaps put in a wide bad air fuel gage and go from there.

    jetting a carb is a science. what camoit said. one of the big things is altitude. I remember the guys from california in tech school bringing their hot rods to Denver, cars ran like crap. start with a baseline and a box of jets. make some runs (down the street) and then read the plugs, black too rich, white, too lean, a nice brown. in the ballpark. then there is the heat range of the plug... did i mention science. make that Trial and error...:-)
