Something different for you 2.0 types
« on: September 13, 2014, 01:32:06 AM »
At least I have never seen one before.

http://www.ebay.com/itm/Edelbrock-Ford-2000-Pinto-2x1-Aluminum-Intake-2-L-4-cyl-F-P-1-/171455459769?pt=Motors_Car_Truck_Parts_Accessories&hash=item27eb8ab1b9&vxp=mtr

I always liked multiple carb setups. Tuning them not so much, but there is definitely a sex appeal attraction there to me.

79 Pinto ESS fully caged fun car. In progress. 8inch 4.10 gears. 351C and a T5 waiting to go in.
74 Pinto Wagon.  To be or Not to be a Pinchero, that is the question.

Finding two of those 1 barrel carbs would be lots of fun.
Its better to be a has-been, than a never was.

Not that hot a setup. Far better to gang up the 1-4 and 2-3 in pairs but harder to build the part that way. The intake events are too lopsided, why it really makes no power. Looks only and does not deliver.

Finding two EFI throttle bodies would be cake though.  8)

I was actually watching that same intake for a while before I decided to go with a 2.3.

Now though, I would just get a set of four ITBs if a 2.0 was on the table.
'72 Runabout - 2.3T, T5, MegaSquirt-II, 8", 5-lugs, big brakes.
'68 Mustang - Built roller 302, Toploader, 9", etc.

The chopper bike guys love that type setup (2 carb) because it allows them to run frame in closer between legs. On the engines I ran (79-83 DOHC Honda fours) though, they make like 10 less hp. than the stock carb does. Easier to make 4 small carbs work than 2 bigger ones. Why cars have 4 barrels.
