Hey:
Just got an 86 4WD Wagon, my first Sube. I've seen mention on the web of swapping out the stock card (Hitachi?) for a Weber. Can anyone clue me in as to the pro's and con's?

Thanks,
Romcat

Jeff, not to offend or anything, but take the caps lock off. It implys that your yelling and people don't like it.

Thanks

I agree, I used to use CAPS when I got on here because I was too lazy to capitalize the letters that needed it and I thought it looked better but after many complaints, hints, nagging and begging I crossed over to " the other side" It's not bad, come on over. Don't be afraid.

As for the Weber, I don't think there is any Cons, It's all Pros from what I hear. Some people have a little trouble with the install but that's the only negative thing I have heard. Not too bad from what I understand,. Everyone that had trouble got through it with the help of the great people on this board.

OK Sube fella's what's the weber model commomnly used? I'm looking for better throughput but in drivable power, not maximum power at some unusable rpm.
BTW is there a K&N filter for the stock airfilter box?

Cheers,
Romcat

You want the Weber 32/36, very common carb used on many cars. Comes with air filter if you buy a new one. Try www.webercarburetor.com or www.redline.com . You will also need the two-piece adaptor. You may have to go to the hardware store to get the proper screws for the adaptor. As I recall my kit from Redline for my 86 wagon required me to do so; no big deal.
