FS: Weber 32/36 DGV carb, manifold & misc DCOE stuff

I've got some parts left over from my DCOE install including:

- Weber 32/36 DGV 5A manual choke (ran well but has typical run-on issue)
- 2 barrel manifold (74 casting)
- stock 2002 fuel pump
- choke cable
- some sidedraft air filters (new and used)
- short velocity stacks
- new DCOE soft mount gasket kit (carbs-to-manifold and manifold-to-head)
- misc other small parts

Can take better pics if required. Not sure how to price so make offers if interested. Looking to get rid of this stuff ASAP!

Twisting my arm! LOL -- As I said, no idea how to price this stuff as the market for 32/36 carbs seems to run anywhere from $30 to $150. Anyways, here's my stab at things:

$50 for carb, $40 for manifold, $10 for each softmount kit, $10 for fuel pump, $10 per air filter.

LOL Rudy, I wish I could do it myself!

My plans changed several times since last year. I ended up rejetting a set of Weber 45s from an old Alfa. Steve Gailits attached them to a Warnford manifold and an old airbox I found on Ebay.de. He also relocated the battery to the trunk. I kept the stock brake booster and he moved the washer bottle to the other side. Bavaria fuel pump and an FPR on the firewall round it out.

I'm loving the setup thus far! The low and midrange have really woken up. The car feels light on its feet where it previously felt a bit asthmatic at times. Also, it screams like a steampunk WRX -- awesome! Power dies around 6k but I'm told that's normal for this motor/setup. The only thing I'm not nuts about is the location of the washer bottle, so I'm going to remount it this weekend and clean the whole thing up.

looks good

You really need a cam to take advantage of those carbs.

John that motor is from Lee from Montreal's track car. I believe it has a mild cam, 284 or 292, along with a lot of other internal mods. Carbs should do it justice.

Looking good Michael.........what's next?

I believe it's a 292 cam. The big carbs seem to suit it well.

Next I will work on the stance. I also have a limited slip sitting around that I haven't put in yet.
