Default Good times with weber's

I've been looking around to see if anyone has put on a set of dual weber IDF 44's and the Mk2 escort distributor mod. I've done the search, and still have yet to see it done. Will I have to be the first?

If i'm going to have to be, here is the modification list I'll be going for. custom manifold for the dual webers, the distributor mod, Grimm speed phenolic intake spacers, borla header, A straight pipe to replace the catalytic converter, flowmaster muffler, a silverline resonated truck tip (12" long, 2.25" inlet, 3.5" outlet) Ripping out almost all the sensors and wires for the computer, re wire it to run like any other carbureted car. Then have **** tons of fun! This way, I could throw in whatever cams (so long as i have the valve springs to handle them) tune it by hand to whatever ignition timing, or richness, and mabye even have a set of custom SOHC adjustable cam sprockets made. Actually, the only part I can't do myself is the adjustable SOHC cam sprocket.

Well I can definetly say that is going to be Unique. Good luck with that and post pictures. It is MY OPINION that this would be WAYYYY more trouble than it's worth. Everyone has their own deals though.. do it if you want to. You will probably be the first.. and last?

yeah, if I was the first and last to do this, it certainly would have the most unique modifications. I'm also thinkin the thing will sound like a '85 mustang GT. If so, I'm sure it'll turn heads and mabye even make some people say "WTF?" but I would love every bit of everyone's confusion.

It's been done. The old skool folks have gone to a disty setup (EJ22 heads will accept the FoMoCo part). This pic still uses a DIS system of some sort. I don't have much info on it.

Oh wow. Is there a reason someone would want to do this instead of just making a custom intake manifold and keeping it EFI? I understand sound and unique factors. But I wouldn't imagine the flow being significant enough to make it a feasible modification. Then again I'm from the age of fuel injection and the only things that I own that is carb is a lawnmower and a snowblower.

sexy! any idea what kind of manifold those webers mount to? I was just gonna make a manifold using the stock one. Love it! Also, If the mounts are for a weber carb, it's really easy to turn it into a ITB set up. But i like my carbs.

Looks like just machined plates similar to a TB spacer.

I dig anyone who doesn't troll, thats all i'm sayin there man. I totally understand your perspective, and i respect it. I too am Interested in watching peoples progress and outcomes by reading up on their updates.

Yeah, i saw that too, looks like machined plates, which is a good way to do it if clearance is an issue. (which it is :/)

Storm, got any pics of the ones with a dizzy?
