Those are some nice pics!<br><br>a couple of questions:<br>do you have anything other than those rubber hoses going from the carbs to engine holding the carbs in place?<br><br>Which carbs are you using?<br>Is the spacing between the carbs the same as spacing between cylinders already, or did you have to modify?<br><br>how big of a nos bottle is that 10lb? I like where it's mounted I mounted mine in the trunk because I'm afraid of cops.<br><br>I definately like your setup! <p></p><i></i>

They look like Mikuni flatside carbs to me. There the better bike carbs to get but you can run regular "round" dsides. I'm working on a mikuni intake manifold that should be ready by late spring<br><br>Adam <p></p><i></i>

Well those carbs are from the 93's gsx-r's <br>that red box is my 6-al MSD ignition box<br>I'm using a red HOLLEY fuelpump....but you can also use those electric fuelpumps from 4-7,5-9 psi...they are a lot cheaper than a holey and they work great!!<br><br><br>Take care,<br>Regards....<br>Lulyras <p></p><i></i>

Fuel is controlled by jetting of the carbs and the fuel pressure that is set by the regulator. There is no wiring.<br><br>You also need an appropriate ignition system as the one in Mk2 on GTi's is controlled by the ECU. <p></p><i></i>

Why ignition system?? Stock mk1 won't work? I think that ecu should still be able to control spark, isn't it?? <p></p><i></i>

Hey Colin the Barbarian..you won't need any ECU if you <br>'re running a mk1..I don't even know where mine is now!!!<br>So if you wanna go running carbs what you will need is ...<br><br>1)fuelpump between 3-7psi is fine<br>2)bike carbs<br>3)FPR ...holley is a good one 4,5-9psi<br>4)intake manifold of course<br><br><br>You can run stock ignition and with or without your ECU ...<br><br>Regards<br>Lulyrast<br> <p></p><i></i>
