    Weber carb how to...

    Where can I find a how to? I also need to know the EXACT model/spec of the complete kit (carb/mounting kit) so I can get one ordered from the local performance shop. I'd rather buy it from somewhere local so if I have problems I can kick some ass I'm up in Ontario....

    I have an 88' accord LX, stock. Slappin' a weber carb on.

    Thanks for the time guys, I'm sure this has been asked before, but I didn't see it while I was searching the old posts...

    What is 32/36 DGEV that stand for? I've seen it mentioned that I should look for a 38/38? What are the numbers I'm lookin' for? I want to get as much performance out of this as I can without killin' my motor.

    BTW, is there cold weather driveability concerns with a weber? Up here in canada can get flippin' cold!

    I don't think there is a how to, its not that hard though. Take of the old carb, vacuume crap, solenoids, ect. Bolt the adapter plate on, bolt the carb on, and hook up all the linkages. Then hook the vacumme line for the advance up, plug off all the other vacuume lines, and your set. Thats what I remember off hand anyway.

    I don't really know what the entire name stands for, weber is an italian company and they couild stand for something in italian for all I know. 32/36 is the size of the bores in mm. The primary is 32mm and the secondary is 36mm. There are other versions of the DGV with diferent size bores. The E means it has an electric choke, there is also an A which has a coolant operated choke. If its just DGV then it has a manual choke.

    The 38/38 DGS has larger 38mm bores and is synchronous opening, opposed to the DGV which the secondary bore doesn't start to open untill 2/3 throttle. The DGS also has the E and A vesions. The DGV is a good choice for a street car. Its has a pleasant manner, is good on gas and is easy to tune, but when you stop on it and open up that secondary bore it comes to life. I have personaly never used a DGS so I can't really say how well it would react. Its not going to have that big boost when its floored like the DGV, intead it has a smooth power curve through out the throttle travel. An advantage you get with the DGV is you can run it on the lean side in the primary bore to get good gas milage and then run the seconday rich for full on power when you floor it. The DGS has a larger flow and is going to be more happy on a higher reving engine thats been modified with some cams. Either carb can be used on the stock engine. The DGV is great, you'll definitely fell the gain. Wether the DGS is more of a gain on a stock motor then a DGV I can't answer. Your best bet is to probably just buy the conversion kit, esp if this is your first time. It comes pretuned for your motor (not perfectly, but its close enough to get it running good) with all the necessary hardware you'll need to make the carb fit and instruction (not the best, but if you have a clue on what your doing they'll get you through). As for performance in cold weather, it doesn't often get below the 20's here. When the carb was on my stock 83 it had no troubles in the winter, on my 85 it wasn't that happy untill the car har warmed up. That could also be atributed to the fact that I have eliminated the manifold heater and the cam doesn't help it idle any better.

    Aren't you going to damage the top of the carb with it hitting the hood?

    can you use a cold air intake with a carb? i know people make custom intakes to suck in more air, but will the cold air not freeze the carb? there hard enough to start as is.

    so you can make a CAI? my carb does start fine, except in the cold, hence the misunderstanding about cold air going directly into it.

    Weber Carb for 1983 accord

    I am considering fitting a weber or some other Carby to the EL engine in my 1983 Honda accord to improve performance, Is this difficult to do and how much more power can be derived from this mod. What else can I do keeping the original engine to get more power?

    Thats about the only thing you can do to the motor. I had one on my 83 with an EK and it was a welcome improvement. I never dynoed nor ran the car at the track so I have no idea what kinda power it was making, but I did manage to out run a 1st gen maxima with it.

    a 34/36 progressive should work nice on the 1.8 (?) motor

    Question ? for all Weber owners

    Question for the prople who have a weber carb.. Do u have to disable the EGR valve to install it? I know there is a hose in there that connects to the stock carb. Also, how would u install a weber in a auto tranny situation?
    Thank you.

    The auto tranny needs and extra cable to go from the carb to the trans so it can rigister the Throttle Value or "TV" for short.

    Basically the more you press the gas the higher the TV and the higer the TV the higer the shift point is... shift point is also refered to Kick Down... basically its the point/rpm where the trans will shift to the next the gear.

    the egr is disable upon installing the weber, but you may be able to hook it up again.

    Yeah, come to think of it, the flow in that plate could be better. Guess I'll have to ask around and see if I can get some one to port mine a little bigger.

    hey A20A1 have you thought about swaping 5 speed?
    it would give you a little better acceleration that auto.
