Black?? I thought you were going silver/aluminum look. The black will make 'em look like the old enkei's...

Lookin good. You guys seem to do a bit of repair. Think you could swing by my thread and see what you think of my latest dilemma? Sorry to get off topic.

Hmm thats a toss up. If the car is going to stay silver I would lean towards the black to offset it but the silver/aluminum look would be sex also.

I wouldn't worry about them it looks factory they prob went to the other markets like I was talking to you about ( headlight squirters/ marker lights ) if everything is working and nothing missing they shouldn't hurt anything to leave them in place or remove neatly but leave access to them just in case

2gslse - just noticed you had to put your WHP number in your signature... bastard.


Chris - we can test the wires and trace 'em back to figure out what they are. As MC said, they probably aren't important since the car was running fine without them before.

OK so not really an update to this project but I need some advice/ideas...The LE project wont be a bank breaker but I really want to pep up the ol 12A,till some day a swap or turbo are things I can afford!
So exhaust is easy my question is fuel, I already have a carter FP and have a Holley 465cfm carb but no manifold for it. I also have a Dellorto DLHA 48 w/ upper manifold but no lower. I know the Holley is 465cfm and from what I can find the Dell is 400ish? whats more suitable for a stock port 12A? Just the cost of new parts wants me to go with the Dellorto but is it the right choice? Thanks!!

Dellorto:
LIM $190.00
Rebuild kit $ 37.95
Air Cleaner $ 39.95
Total: $267.90+s/h

Holley:
LIM $285.00
Bracket $ 22.00
Rebuild kit $ 25.00
Air Cleaner$ 60.00
Total: $392.00+s/h

I'm there with you on the budget build. Except we are building ours a little out of sequence! I'm doing paint last!

I had a Weber 45 DCOE sidedraft with the RB intake manifolds that was going to go on it, but I swapped with a local guy for the Holley kit instead. 4 barrels offer a little better driveability from what I hear. jfaplanet has the Dellorto 48 on his REPU and it works well with his set up. Most guys around here run the Holley kits, so that is why I am going that route. Don't forget that with the Dell, you also need an upper manifold.

Which Carter pump did you get? You will also need a regulator for either carb you pick.

Are you going to DGRR with this? We can compare once we are there

The carter is an off the shelf at the local auto parts store not sure what model, but it doesn't make the dreadful loud buzzing sound my Holley Red pump made!! The Dell already has an upper manifold I just don't have a lower for the 12A. I'm not really sure what direction I want to go with it. The dell looks sweet and performs well im sure, my dad had a repu back when I was a kid with a S5 n/a with the dell and exhaust it seemed fuckin fast ...

Time to get that garage dirty you are taking after Bill too much on the cleanliness, be a man get stuff dirty make lots of grunting noise and mark your territory
I don't know which carb would be best its a toss-up since people have had good luck with each set-up and equal amounts have had bad luck, my opinion would be the Dellorto since it has been run on a rotary before and may be easier to tune but will cost more for jets than the holley

MC you know I like it dirty Just haven't had a chance yet! Yea I want to use the Dell just wasn't sure which would be the top performer for the stock 12A. I need to check and see what jets it currently has, dad had this one on the REPU with the S5 so im sure its set to RB specs for that motor. Parts wise I think it will be the cheaper of the two also which is good news also!!
BTW you need to get up here and hang out, take some parts for powder coating and lend me those wheels Please
