Are dual Solex 40s crazy to get


Recommended Posts

yea - crazy rare

yea - there were 1600 ti motors produced

yea - you'll need the 'small' port intake manifolds because of the 1600

intake port size - not the same as the 2002 intakes

happy hunting

learned a new one there, had no idea there was any difference between a 1600 ti manifold and 2002ti manifold (but then again never really focused on it either). 2002ti manifolds as well as Solex 40phh's are all over German Ebay - easy to get, not super cheap, but not crazy expensive either.

I have a 1600 motor in my car and went through the same issue with intake size. Im running a 2002 cannon intake manifold with the 32/36 on it. I ended up using a dremel to open up the intake inlets on the head. Worked great! Did it while the head was on the car too. There is just enough meat left to make a good seal when its all said and done.

Charlie, here comes the deuce. And when you speak of me, speak well!

Right now I'm in the process of stripping the entire car down to nothing. The engine is stock but I plan on doing a cam swap and, obviously, headers. I know it's not the best investment to put money into a 1.6, but I like the idea of a higher revving engine, sounds like fun in the twisties...;-). There's no real rush, I'm just trying to plan the next year, or so, so that I'm not waiting at any stage just to make a decision. Feel free to come by sometime and check it out, I'm in Reseda. Do you ever go to Supercar Sunday in Topanga? I'd love to see some 02's there..
