    Weber 45 Dcoe Carbs on Astra 1.8????

    As the Title surgests im looking into getting weber carbs fitted to my car and was wondering first off is their any manifolds out there to support this kinda Mod if not where shuld i look for a custom built one.

    what are the real Pro's and Cons to doing this to a post 1998 engine (if it makes any difference)

    more details about the engine im putting them on: its an x reg Astra SXI 1.8, beleaved to be the x18xe1 engine as from my understanding the Z18 was put in the SRI and later models.

    What i know about Carbs: there cheaper then ITB's create the same gr8 induction noise and have slightly less but quite similar power gains. thats about it.

    I would love to do it i just like to know as much as i can before i go ahead and burn just over £1500 (including other mods in mind) on me 1.8 motor
    COURTNEY stage 2 135bhp proven X18XE1
    Astra G SXI, veccy c pipe, remus center section, 4" jap style exhaust. And apparently an import

    Use far more fuel, fail emission tests etc. They use plenum/runner manifolds for a reason btw.

    It sounds like an interesting original modification, go for it. Although it'll give you awful fuel economy. But you're not doing it for fuel economy anyway
