I want to put carbs on my G10 and I need to know exactly what years have the machanical distributer and what don't. I have a 91 xfi Metro. For fuel, I'm going to run the stock system and eliminate the pressure regulater removed. That way it's just and open system that flows as much fuel as it can through, and the carbs take what ever they want. I'm not sure on the carbs to use. The motor is about 1000cc, so I figure that is 333cc per cylinder. So I need something close to that per cylinder. I'm not sure about going much bigger because I don't want to flood the motor. I want something I can buy a lot of parts for easy, like jets and what not. I know I'm kind of asking for someone to hold my hand and guide me through this, but I really would appreciate all the help I can get. I'll go at it and try to do it one way or another.

I still want to do this. I'm about to really dig in to this project. I've got a race in the Celica this Saturday, so I'm prepping the car for that. After that, I'm free to tear apart the Metro.

The carbs are off a 750 nighthawk.
28mm, I believe.
The manifold was made from a stock one.

Would these really be a good set of carbs to work with so I could tune them quickly and reject them depending on driving conditions and what not? I want some carbs that don't nessisarily just bolt up, but ones that are really tunable. Tuning is the biggest part of this project. I'm headed to the junkyard tomorrow to see what I can find for the car. I really want to start on this, but I'm to nervous to just start buying stuff and throwing it at the car hoping that it will work.

They're just about perfect for the G10.
The carb size is the same as the int. port, and they are constant velocity, so they should work gret for the street.

It's not just a street car. It's a weekend racecar. I like Solo2, so the goal is to ultimately set it up for that. I don't understand the importance of the same size with the intake port. I also don't understand the significance of constant velocity carbs. Am I really showing my ignorance or what?

I checked out the CV carbs, and they are pretty much the butterfly style apposed to the piston style. At least that's how I've looked at them. I know the 2 styles existed, but I never thought about which one would be better for the car. I still don't understand matching the ports. Flow is flow. If it's too small, obviously it won't flow enough. But if it's too big you'll only get more air. You can never have too much air. I guess it would be better for ease of flow to stop the air from bottle-knecking, but I couldn't see that being a real problem.
