i talked to him because i am local.

he said that the black tubes are very rare. it gives a better power response from the engine and this is one of the main reasons he is pretty firm on the price ?!!?

the car was also repainted.

Not sure about the plastic tubes providing better performance than the later aluminum runners.

Check the engine VIN with the body and steering column pad.

Don't be afraid to look under the car during inspection. Take someone with you who knows about tii's if you are not familiar with them - or pay for a real inspection.

Of course this is pure speculation on my part, however, the seller may just be referring to the black tubes as it is a tii engine (better performance - more hp over its solex carb brother), thus the rarity as well. Tii's for the most part, do demand a premium.

I'm a HUGE fan of early "black tube" tiis. I've often heard people complain about them causing vacuum leaks (cured by eight $2 O rings) but they indicate early 121 head / higher compression motors. I remember reading Mahle and/or KS piston catalogs and seeing that 121 head cars had slightly higher compression than E12 cars (with metal tubes). Someone here can surely verify or correct me on this point. Euro cars had 10:1 in that configuration. No substitute for displacement *OR* compression. Only the initial 3200 or so USA spec cars had the plastic runners. Rare? Eh.

I personally LOVE the "prototype" looking appearance of the plastic runners. Never had a problem with mine, though they're difficult to remove and install without warming them up in hot water / heat gun.

Do they flow better? Hell...who knows! I'd never "upgrade" to metal ones.

Just my opinion (I have a lot of those)
