I went to my local cabie center on friday at lunch to see if they had any 32/36 webbers in stock and he said that a brand spanking new webber 32/36 would be about $480 if i hand him cash otherwise it will be 500 neat, or i could have a reco one for the sum of $330 cash.

I thought that this was a bit steep. what do you think?

Is it worth it?

They are not cheap... The kit from carbs unlimited run $388.

The cheapest I found (carb only, not with adapter plate) was in the neighborhood of $315...

Aftermarket Webers are expensive, especially when you can buy Holly 2bbls for under $150 all day long..

It runs in my mind that Snowman paid less than that. PM him for details.

yeah ok so that price aint all that unreasonable after all, maybe i should just fork out the coin, maybe i should try make a deal with them like $600 fitted including a filter?


Is the extra power etc worth all the $?

Don't forget the $480 is Australian dollars. So $315USD = $415AUD (and also every thing over here is more just because.) $600 for a carb or the EA81 sounds like a ..... Anyway, I wouldn't buy it. After all for $1000 (and a fair bit of work) you could fit a old EJ20 (non turbo) in there Brumby Boy.

I hear you can get a S/H weber for $100 + $50 odd for the adapter plate on AUSubaru. New carbies always cost a bucket load of cash.

EA81 stock has 76HP and 100 odd ft-lb. A old EJ20 would have around 110HP and 130? ft-lb... I don't know what a weber can do for a EA81, but I don't think it would get anywhere near 110HP...

Hey, hows that rollbar coming along?

yeah i dont know. I dont realy have the energy, paitents or time to go fitting an ej20 as much as ide love to. but yeah i dont think it is worth the money, i think i might get that lift before any motor work. im picking up my new Performance Chalnger 15x7 wheels today:headbang:


PS: i havnt even had a chance to touch that roll bar yet i have been too busy looking for a new place to live.

the wheels are currently straight white and abit rough so i will be spending some time to clean them up and repaint them like the ones you did that photoshop with for me. if i dont have a lift by the time they are ready ill be putin on some 215/50-15 roadies on but if i have my lift they will be gettin some bridgestone desert dualer A/T's like the ones on my mates patrol. Geez i love my mates parents tyre shop:brow: .
