  1. Coils are spun all the way down and I still want it to be lower. What’s wrong with me?
  2. I love the 38/38. I have an otherwise stock 76 and I just installed my second 38/38. The first was a handmedown/loaner so I had to give it back eventually. The first carb definitely ran a little rich, but since it wasn’t mine I never fussed too much with jetting. The new one, which I tuned yesterday, has already made a massive improvement over both the 32/36 and the old 38/38. I would definitely recommend a wideband, it’ll make your life a lot easier. And while it may not be absolutely necessary to bore out your manifold... do it. I did it myself in about an hour (including removal and installing). Just use the gasket at a guide and mark it with a sharpie. It doesn’t have to be perfect, just the right size. In fact, a coworker mentioned that a slightly rougher wall may actually have some benefits. Alternatively, drop it off at a machine shop. It’s a very inexpensive modification to have done and once you get your 38/38 on and tuned you’ll never want to go back. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  3. I installed this highly sophisticated wideband setup and my buddy helped me tune it. Sits around 12.3 under load, so still some room for improvement. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  4. Redline / Worldpac sells kits jetted for the 2002. I actually don’t know what’s in there out of the box but I’ll try to find out. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  5. After some frustration last night and some... creative problem solving (chopping the throttle shaft on a brand new Weber... ouch) my new 38DGAS is in! Car started right up no problem, fine tuning tomorrow as to not piss off the neighbors. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  6. Trying to find beauty in the process. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  7. I used a little red loctite on the threads. I actually don’t know what that paint is called but it works similarly to loctite. I bent that tab up afterwards as well. It’ll go in tonight and I’ll tune it tomorrow. I’d love to get it all done tonight, but this car is rather loud and I don’t want to bother the neighbors tonight! Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

  9. I’m with you there on the paranoid thinking Tom, but the more I think about it the less I think it’ll be an issue long term. More than anything I just feel weird about chopping a brand new Weber, but that feels like the best (and easiest) bet. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  10. You and I had the exact same initial thought, but see my reply above to Simeon. Shockingly I don’t have enough clearance on the other side to do that without the throttle return spring bashing into the hose [emoji854] Also, there’s the issue that the threads don’t go all the way to the base so I’d have to stack washers.

  11. That’s what I thought at first, but clearance on the other end becomes an issue almost immediately... with the old carb there was enough room that the return would be just in front of the hose, if I add enough washers to clear the throttle shaft, i’m going to be up against the hose whenever i’m not on the throttle.

  12. The old one for reference Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  13. Hi all. I went to swap out a borrowed Weber 38 for a brand new one I bought and I’ve run into an issue. The throttle shaft is too long and blocks the necessary hole. I did some digging, but came up empty handed. Is there any way to shorten this without chopping it? Has anyone else run into this problem? Thanks Sam Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  14. Back in the thread to talk about Gottis. My 15" Gotti 150s (15x8 and 7) fit about as perfectly as I could have hoped for. I'm sure they're not everyone's cup of tea but hot damn, I am in love with how they look. Now to, uh... try to make the rest of the car not look like a pile of junk.
  15. I don’t have any good pictures of it, but I did this mod an loved it. I sourced an early round shift boot and IE actually had a 1600 parts car that they were willing to cut the round retention ring (if that’s what it would be called) out of the transmission tunnel and send to me. Esty was then kind enough to trim a piece of close-enough spare carpet as a temporary solution to cover the seem that my car has there. It worked really well and I think it’s an awesome look.
