Carby/cam options for 4g32

Postby Timhooty » Fri Apr 21, 2017 8:33 am

So I've got a 4g32b in my 76 lancer that I'm wanting to get a little more grunt out of. Not looking for a full performance/ rally set up, just want a bit more power and be able to still drive it in traffic.
At the moment I've got the stock carb and I'm guessing stock Cam shaft.
I'm looking at bolting a Weber on (not sure what though, I've seen people talk about a 32/36 so mabey that). But I do have a pair of solex carbs on my chain drive 1600 that would need a rebuild if I was to use them. The last option is one my friend is pushing for and that's getting a set of bike carbs and strapping them on. Bike carbs would be kinda interesting because it's not really common but I'm not sure about reliability, power ect.
Cost isn't really an issue with carb choice, reliability with a power increase is what I'm after.

As far as Cam shafts go I've got no idea, I know the#5 is one everybody wants but I'm not sure how streetable it would be.

Thanks for any help guys.

Rebuild the twins - everything else will either cost you money, time or most likely both due to tuning issues.
Best bang-for-buck are twin sidedrafts (40 Solexes that came on Toyota twin cams are a great option and cheap) - just have to find a s/h Lynx manifold (Weber Performance do them new but $$$) Good luck
Good drivers have dead bugs on the side windows.....
