Weber 38/38 woke my little rice burner up!!

Stock carb crapped out at 100,000 miles. Truck shuttered and would shut off when depressing the clutch when coming to a stop. Decided to go with a Weber 38/38 and remove all the smog junk and WOW!! It woke my little truck up! It will zoom now! Peppy and fun to drive! Cruising at 70 mph up hill is no problem. I highly recommend the Weber. I had the cat converter and muffler taken off a year ago. Weber carbs are awesome!!! :mrgreen: :mrgreen:

Are you using Weber's square/paper air filter element (or the sponge oval), or are you using an adapter to retain use of your old air filter arrangement? I'll get around to installing a 32/36, but I'd like to keep my stock air filter assembly. Just wondering if you did the same. I see that Pierce sells an adapter for about $37, and then there's the hood clearance to wrestle with. Just curious.
