  1. Thank you Crazyeights for your warm welcome. Of course I'll share a pictures of my beloved, little car. I have it for four years, done many mods to improve performance and now, the biggest project in my life. I've made it totally without electronics, only dual carbs and mechanical ditsy. Yes, I know, I'm crazy. As stock car, it has full body kit without hood and interior without steering wheel, from european GT Turbo version. Limited paint job, 53C "Monte Carlo Blue/555 Blue" to memorize the win in Rally Monte Carlo, 16" Enkei stock wheels and some gold stickers too. Mechanical it's standard, naturally aspirated 2.0 Impreza, RX model which was the richest trim version of NA GC8 in Europe.
  2. Hi guys, first of all, I want to apologize for my mistakes in English, it's not my native but I'll try my best. I introduce my project, which is SOHC EJ20 with dual Weber 44 IDF's and Bosch mechanical distributor. I've always wanted a japanese engine form "golden era" but without electronic, something with old soul. Now, I would like to ask you all about setting that carbs. I'm sure some of you guys did something similar like putting a single or dual carb on a EJ motor. My question is: can you help me with your knowledge to set this baby properly? Like i said, I'm using dual, twin barrel 44 IDF's. Their spec is below.. 2x Weber 44 IDF Venturi - 36mm Idle jet - 55 Main jet - 155 Pump jet - 50 Air correction jet - 200 Emulsion tube - F11 Idle mixture screw - between 1 1/2 to 2 1/2 turns, out from the point Idle speed screw - 2 turns in This is the settings when my engine wants to start up and keep at least 500 rpm. I'm really confused because I'm going with instruction to set those webers properly like turning in mixture screws until engine starts to drop rpm, then turning out, little by little to the best idle sound. Next, using sychrometer, adjusting idle speed screws. Rechecking everything couple times and engine still won't work like it should. It keeps about 800 rpm wich is good for subaru engine but it's shaking the whole car. When I touch the throttle very delicate, it builds up revs but shaking is still there and sometimes a pop happens. If I want to push the throttle imidiately, it has a lag for 1-2 seconds and then, starting to build up revs. If someone has any idea, what I can do to make this work at it's best, I'll be very grateful. Cheers everyone
  3. Hi everyone, at the beginning, forgive me please my future mistakes, English is not my native language, but I'll try my best. It's so nice to meet you all guys. I'm driving 1997 GC8 Impreza 2.0 RX "555 Sport" Limited (one of rare, european versions of NA Impreza's). Cheers
