Re: performance



I say a 40mm carb is too big, especially for a stock engine -- a 34 or 36 would 
probably give better mileage and smoother acceleration.  Our manifolds are just 
too short to fully reap the power of big carbs like what's found on the upright 
engines.

Now, if you use the same carbs and convert them to FI, well, then you'll really 
get those horses kickin'.  Of course, FI is a more evolved creature.

Guys,
Unless you are dead set on expensive performance try this:
1600DP, Stock heads, 1.4 ratios, Dual 40's, 7.5:1 compression and a good 
extractor.  It has all added up to 78hp with 100,000 reliability and 
24mph.  All bolt on, all practical exept the carbs- You need them on a 
"performance motor" anyway.
Also, a single port 1600 with this is still a good daily, torkey(sp?) 
motor.
