Re: [T3] Luke, come to the dark side

Actually, it's more a matter of selecting the proper size venturi and jets
when it comes to the bigger Webber carbs. So potentially the 40mm carbs
could be a good match. However, even Berg is not completely satisfied with
just changing the venturi and jets, they prefer to go a step further and
modify the fuel circuits (don't ask me how cause I don't know) to make it
flow just right for VW aircooled engines.

If the only thing you will change on your future engine is the displacement,
then it's not likely you will gain much from these carburators over the
Solex 32's, in fact you have a good potential to loose power and cause
excessive heat and wear out your engine prematurely with Nrbs, should
you not get them setup properly. If you want to sink the money into Webers,
make sure you get them from the people that build your engine so that they
can be properly adjusted to your configuration.
