What the best banging carb for my buck?

Throw them at me! I need a new carb and I don't want a piece of crap and I don't want to spend too much

no.

i can't tell you which one to get, but i can give you an opinion on which one not to get. stay away from carter, they are, imo, garbage. also stay away from the EMPI one that quadratec sells. it was better than the carter that was on there, but it was still a giant piece of garbage. i have heard good things about the motor craft swap, but you'll probably need to tweak it to meet emissions.




btw, i am still looking for those damn staun tire deflators for you. they have to be around somewhere.

I'd stay away from the Carter... Check a few other postings here before you run with that POS. Mine was nothing but trouble - IMO it's trying to be too far ahead of it's time, especially if you still have the computer hooked up (you remember how good 1980's "computers" were, right ??)

I swapped mine last week for a Motorcraft 2100 and bought it from a guy on Ebay who's done hundreds of kits, for around $300. I was a bit worried, living on an island if something in the kit wasnt quite right I'd be stuck without spares for weeks!

Neednt have worried, everything just worked first time and such an easy swap (click here to see my other post)

Finally my '90 Sahara runs as smooth as a 6-pot should!
