I've got a Weber on my 2 liter and it's great. I believe my engine originaly 
came with fuel injection but the previous owner changed to the Weber, which is 
a very good idea in my opinion. Lot's more reliable. No heat risers though so 
it's a little slow to warm up when it's cold (it was a Colorado bus so I'm 
surprised he chose this set up).. No problems after I get past the first stop 
sign in my neighborhood, it handles the Texas winter really well...I imagine if 
it was a lot colder it'd be a hasle. Gives lots of power too, and decent fuel 
mileage as long as you don't slam it to the floor all the time haha.

so it's that good of a power gain then? 

i'm pumped for it now. hopefully it's in as good of condition as he leads on 
for it to be.

  It always works that way, just like a 4 barrel you have to stay out of the 
secondaries. When I had that setup on my bug vert I could get 28-32 miles per 
gallon if I drove conservatively. If I was playing then it didn't get as good 
of mileage. What you give up in mileage is well worth what you gain in power.   
   Just my
 opinion.

i had one on my 77 and absolutely loved it...only problem is i didn't have heat 
risers on it so it was really cold natured. 

this one has the risers so hopefully that problem will be resolved.

one thing i do remember is if i didn't stay out of the gas i got terrible 
mileage...is that going to be a similar problem here?

I am almost afraid to answer this one!
What are you driving? What engine?

I had one on my bus, I have a1700 Type IV engine. It
 worked fine, but I wanted to go back to dual carbs like it had origianally. So 
if you want tor try, I have one here in Abilene I will sell ya!
