Picked up a new WEBER DCOE 40 dual carb kit for the 924, thought I'd share some pictures. I plan on installing it over the next winter since I can't do it over the summer as I will be without a garage this summer while I tear down the old garage and build a new one. Should be an interesting experiment, I'll document the process here, look for updates late in the fall when the tinkering season starts again in Canada...

The kit:


The carb(s):


The manifold:


The linkage, gaskets and hardware:


The "instructions":

Complete with the correct jets, too! Splendid!

Did it come with the Breather filters as well? O BTW..I call first dibs on your TB and CIS system if you decide to sell it!

I have to buy a few more items, including filters (probably the individual black socks for each trumpet). Also need a fuel pressure regulator and various hoses and hose fittings.

Duly noted. You'll get a practically new CIS system, everything thing but the distributor and lines to the injectors are new, seriously. Of course, I need to be sure this setup works before I get rid of my nice reliable CIS.

Emissions.

E.g. The Ferrari 308 went from quadruple Weber to - guess what! - CIS! to meet emission demands.

Yes, the "off-road use only" refers to California and other states and provinces with strict emmission laws. Alberta has no emmission testing so I'm good to go with the Webers, they are legal here.

Not sure if I understand the rest of Nobbi's post, but yest they will be louder. There may be some more power to extract from my big valve head and stage 1 cam by going to the Webers, we shall see. I'm not sure bolting the kit to a stock 924 head would show gains, but it could.

I got the kit through JAM Engineering http://www.jameng.com/. I dealt with John Moulton, he was very helpfull. The kit costs $1,100. However, when John spoke to the Cannon factory they had one complete kit on the shelf (which I got) and they didn't know when they would get more.

*shudder* carbs...

Oh Chrenan, you were doing so well

I'm sure you'll find more power, if for no other reason than the low-restriction, but boy are they a pain to deal with. I'm still screwing with my motorcycle carbs trying to get a good tune. Of course, being 32 years old doesn't help them much either.

At least install a wash basin in your garage so you can get some of the gas stench off you before walking in your house! You can't get near a carb without getting fuel on you.

I'll be leaving the tuning to a shop in town familiar with multiple carbs on Porsches. I'll do the install myself, but I know my skillset and stick to it.

Those are gorgeous, I love Webers. And with all due respect to our colleague, don't let anyone tell you they are 'impossible to tune' because they aren't. . .to the contrary. They run cleaner and more reliably than CIS by a long shot.

Yeah, nothing incites strong emotions, either for or against, like carbs.
