FAT racing manifold worth it?

Postby jakes_hachiroku » Wed Jan 10, 2018 8:54 am

So fat racing used to make this cool looking carb manifold to suit one weber down draft carb or what ever brand carb fits lol ive been running two weber 40's on my 4age for drift and they have been ok but would there be any benefit at all to switch to just one down draft with this manifold? here is the link: https://www.ebay.com/itm/4AGE-SMALL-POR ...

This is from my Vdub days, but running a single carb compared to dual. single was a bit peaky and tended to favor the top end(weird since the runners were quite long) while the bottom was choppy off throttle. Part of the issues were due to manifold design and carb used, steel tube mani with Weber 44DCNF. Advantage of a single over dual? Balancing and tuning. A single is less labor intensive. Duals run much better. If you can get some 44 or 45mm slides it would be a great way to go!
One shot, one kill.
