Rebuild stock or just go weber?
« on: May 10, 2014, 07:36:10 AM »
Debating on rebuilding the stock D5ZE ( I think it a 5200 for a 75? on my 74 2.3?) or just taking the leap to a dgv or 38. Yielding to the wisdom of your experience.

5200's are on my last nerve. I'm about to go 38 myself. Joe Escobar runs a 38 on his 2.3 & he loves it. It does take a little fabbing to get the linkage lined up & I'm trying to find a spacer to use with the EGR adapter but that should be it.
