i would just go and buy a set of gaskets for both parts. then you have templates for both and you'll have the gaskets already on hand when you're ready to install! :)

Wow let me say that again . .. WOW !!

installed the 2nd version of the Adapter and what a difference

Posted Image


the first one was easier to install , thats why I did it that way, the design was to restrictive and blunt, the second one which Im now going to offer for sale opens up and has a smooth transision, you can see in this next picture the difference down the throat,

Posted Image

also as a added benifit it sits about 1 Inch lower

Posted Image

had to take it out and test it and boy do I like this car , took it offroad and its got some lowend grunt what a difference from the stock EA82s Ive been running , now to work out the details and make a list of all the stuff required for this conversion, SJR

Are you going to offer complete intake manifolds or just weld on adapters?

This maybe just what I need to move out of the smog nazi state of CA :)

$150 for converted Manifold,as seen in picture,(comes with 2 blockoff plates and the adapter welded in place ready to install ), need your manifold for exchange, SJR

What about instead of angling the the plate to have the carb sit level, just having it be flat? That would leave the carb tilted forward on the flats, but more level on the up hill climbs? Heck, you could possibly bolt it straight to the top of the intake by just drilling and tapping stud holes? What do you think?

Scott, are you going to save me a million miles of wiring? I saw a zenith stromburg carb that would maybe bolt right up on your block off plate. I don't know if it would fit or work really or the price of one but it might be a bolt on conversion. Right shape anyway. Another thought I had was for a bolt on box, semi triangular, to mount the weber carbie on the stock inlet just in the rear. I'm sure you could cast a perfect one with good flow. Bolt it on and drive away! Go back for the wires later if you so need them! Would anything be in the way? I don't have an ej in my car to look at yet, I just got my donor and I will look today. :clap:

And everyone i know thinks Im the only one crazy about roos. I would have no hair without this forum!

[quote name='Yo'J]a bolt on box' date=' semi triangular, to mount the weber carbie on the stock inlet just in the rear. [quote']

Ive looked at that and that might be ideal, the casting is much more complex and would take me more time to get tooled up to make them, but yes I think that would be a good option

does the escort disty have a Star wheel in it like the pre-87 EA distys?
do have any interest in making a manifold that wouldn't require cutting the hood?

thanks!

forget the pickup coil set-up question I found pics on the internet.
looks like I can do what I was thinking to do!

(still have to check my engine for the disty slot)

Hey scott,
Any kind of idea on what power you're seeing out of this setup? I've happened across an EJ22 locally that I'm about to snatch up and I'm going to look into all the options before I decide where it goes...

I know that while we where wheeling up there the last time at Walker ever time you stood on it to get going I could smell it. It smelled kinda rich. But I don't know for sure. It's kind of a mystery.:)
