Go to http://sv3power.com/?page_id=371 to see a good write up on the 32/36 carb that's used on the Pintos.
Its better to be a has-been, than a never was.

Dick, would you recommend the 32/36 over the stock Pinto 2.3l carb? I'm going to go with the efi intake and an ACE 5001 adapter. For a street, occasional track/autocross car which carb would you prefer over the rest. Thanks for sharing your knowledge!

The weber and holly 32/36 are so much alike that what works for one will work for the other. I would use an autolite/motorcraft 120 (350cfm) carb for your set-up. Super simple and easy to work on and they do work. Lot of them used on 2.3L engines in mini-stocks. If your dead set on a weber, get a 38/38. Joe Escobar has his 38/38 set up for sale as he went to a turbo.
