Webers on a Hemi/SOT


Recommended Posts

Attended a local car show in Franklin, NC over the weekend. Mostly domestic 50's and 60's stuff with a few neat exceptions. 1954 Mack with sleeper cab, fully restored and very well done. 1934 Plymouth with Desoto hemi, real nice . And a 38 Desoto coupe with 60's Hemi power. Space was so tight in the nose that he put the radiator and an electric fan behind the drivers seat with ducting behind the drivers door. What caught my eye was the 426 Hemi was breathing through a pair of Weber 45's. Talking to the owner he knew the airflow was constricting his power as his dyno results flattened out @ 5500 with 425 when he should have been closer to 600 at the wheel. The Webers were only throttle bodies as the Hemi was injected in the custom manifold but their combined airflow was choking off this Hemi's potential. Owner's plans were to go with a cross ram manifold with individual throttle bodies in the offseason.
