The DCOM carbs are a poor man's version of the DCOEs. I'm not sure of the details on this, but I do know that DCOMs are not anywhere as tunable as the DCOES. You'll often see DCOMs on e-bay for a lot less than DCOE carbs. I'd stay away from the inferior version. Also, you'll find that DCOMs were factory on some makes/models of cars simply because they were cheaper.

I think many of us have seen the DCOM's for sale on EBay fairly cheaply. The seller states that the DCOM's are actually an improvement on the DCOE's, I don't think the statement about DCOM's being "not anywhere as tunable as the DCOE's" is exactly true- what exactly do you mean or what have you heard about that??

I know the guy selling lots of carbs on EBay seems to be getting them off of some Euro-only cars (like Alfas!).

Does anyone have the real story on DCOM's vs. DCOE's???

I have both types done a lot with the dcoe's Just got a set of 3 40 dcom's from the European e-bayer alfa 1750 or something like that excellent service and product by the way. the dcom are the exact same carb as the dcoe's except they use a diaphragm pump all other jets are interchangable. Most people don't realy tune the pump circut much if at all it might be worth the saving to you....Marty....
