What's so special about Webers?
1. You have to be a genius to tune 'em (you'd better be, you'll have to do it so often)
2. They're 10 times more expensive than any other carb set up and often more expensive than a custom EFI setup.
3. They don't make as much horsepower as a well tuned Holley, BG, etc. unless you happen to be... (see 1, above)
4. They look as cool as anything on any engine, but especially on a Ford.
5. I still love 'em, but wouldn't want 'em on my own car.
Now, before I get flamed to a crisp, the above was written with tounge firmly planted in cheek!
it only has one return spring and the pedal is very light as is the clutch thanks to center force cluthes,i say dont worry about the fuel costs just the sound and the extra torque you get from webers is........im lost for words
hitman kb: go for a ride in a v8 that has webers and then tell me what you think
Oh, well I just figured having four carbs would require more spring (not four times as much, but more) than a single carb. Just from my experience with ATVs and bikes, more carbs = more throttle pull, but I guess if the carbs are well built and have bushings (unlike my damn edelbrock 750) then they probably wouldn't require too much spring. My edelbrock has probably twice as much spring as most rigs I've driven, and it still sticks just above idle occasionally, POS.
