replace carb on '84 GL?
Posted 21 October 2005 - 05:05 PM
So my question is...do I just go and get a new carb? The exhaust is getting fixed first, and then I have to save up for a $400 carb. I'm not going to open up and upgrade this engine, so probably don't need to upgrade carb? I would like to make this into a bit of an off-roader next year, nothing major. Got the Subie for playing in the dirt and snow.

For a stock replacement, I'd go with a rebuilt carb from Roo-Builders. They're much cheaper than a new carb, and many people have had very good luck with them.
Another popular option is to convert to a Weber 32/36 DGEV carb for a bit more performace. These require some tuning to get right, but I have been told that they run very well.
My personal favorite is to swap over the SPFI (single-point fuel injection) setup from an 87-94 EA82 subaru (yes, SPFI was offered in 85-86, but that system wasn't as good). It's really not that much work, and the improvement in drivability and fuel economy is worth it in my opinion.

Again, thanks! You may have saved me a couple of hundred bucks!
