Get some good tires if you want to RallyX.
Plug wires and a hotter coil will help, along with the exhaust.

gap your plugs .45-.5.
Thats a huge gap.. Why not try something a little more conservative like .045-.050

If you have some mechanical know how it is simple to swap the carb. Stock carb is simple to remove/install and the weber has even less to it than the stock. If you are the type of person that goes to the grease monkey to have your oil changed I would not suggest you attemp the job. Maybe the best thing is for you to meet up with someone who has done a carb swap before. This way nothing gets messed up and you gain some experience.

you could tackle swapping the carb yourself, and have the pro just tune it in, save on labor costs.
just remember, anything hands on you do with your car, just ask about it here, you will be sure to get some excellent expertise!

the motor swap its self will be all bolt-in, but you will have to get heavy-duty into the electrical, to wire in the ecu and harness that came from the car the turbo motor came form
you would have to swap the whole motor, because the turbo intake is dual ports, and will not bolt up to the carb motor.
get the accel super stock coil, about 30 bucks. you can gap the plugs to .045-.050, and run one of theose "custom fit" cut to length make your own accel 8mm wire sets, about the same price

From what has been said on the board, its easier to just get a turbo'd motor.
If you really want to go this route, The Scooby started a post sometime last week about puttin a turbo on his carbbed wagon.
Theres good info there.. Check it out

ru4x4ever My bad i was ASSUMEing it was it was fuel injected.
my 85 wagon 10 spd 4x4 with the hitachi carb and dist seems to enjoy: removal of emissions controls, 2" single pipe mandrel bent from y-pipe to the glasspack, accel 8140C coil NGK plugs vac advance connected directly to intake manifold, and the cheap gas with 10% etaonol!
no need to buy a "CHERRY BOMB" name brand muffler:madder:
