I own a 73 2002. I'm looking to upgrade my carburetor. I'm thinking either a 32/36 or 38/38. Both Weber's. I'm leaning towards a 38/38 as the response is apparently better. Can anyone comment on the difference? is it noticeable? and how bad is the resulting loss of fuel economy from a 38/38? also noticeable? Finally the place to buy. I've seen a great looking one from Ireland Engineering. Its 375$. While one from WeberCarbsDirect is only 290$. Both come with filter, linkage, adapters of various use etc... and from what I can tell are basically the same. Any reason not to go with weberdirect?
Finally on a stock 2002.. how much increased HP can I expect from this conversion? If I tune to minimize wear on the engine...conservatively?
Thanks Everyone.. This is my first Carb upgrade so any help is greatly appreciated.
