spfi vs weber... off the line!

but a weber is not stock, and thus not a fair comparison since the SPFI is legal to drive in all 50 states....

The cars might be setup differently and one may have more power(hp and/or torque) than the other but it's really up to the driver on how fast it is.
I'm fairly confident that I could get my SPFI '90 to be faster than a similar setup weber car..... I think.

My 87 has a weber setup, better coil, and upsized exhaust... I estimate it makes ~95 HP or so (84 stock) since its been opened up so much.

no realy after having both i like the spfi better... i have never had my weber dialed in perfectly, but at WOT im not that impressed. i would rather take out my carb model, with the weber, and throw a spfi motor, with the fuel injection... maybe i just had an exceptionally well tuned spfi, but i just cant get my weber to run like my spfi did. and... wouldnt you have to rejet for altitude with a weber?
i like fuel injection, even though i dont have a subaru with it anymore:-\

Lets go! We could make it an official USMB test.
BUT everything else would need to be setup similar though, tire size, gear ratios, exhaust size, etc..... all though, I'm willing to do reguardless!

175 series (technically should be 185's on there, but I got the set for $80 with like 90% tread left)
Tranny: Dual range part time 4WD 5 speed 3:90 diff ratio
Exhaust: 2.0" to cat 2.25" to muffler inlet 2.5" to atmosphere
Stock engine block, only has deleted EGR (and other vacuum crap) and an accel coil and weber 32/36 carb
No drag from AC cause I dont have it
my 250 pound+ body and all the tools and crap I have in the back will weigh the car down a bit, but I guess I could take out all but the essential tools (air compressor and a small socket set)
