If anyone knows how that would be great, I'm intersted in doing this depending on price might limit when though.

But I'm not too sure about it still. I googled, and found this in the old forum... lol
http://pub83.ezboard.com/fteamswiftfrm1 ... 21&stop=29

but I am still unsure of what all I would need and what to do with all the bits (I'm sure I could figure it out, but I would like to know beforhand). Also price is an issue for me as I still am a student.

UPDATE... just as I was gona post I found this site here:

http://www.interlog.com/~lkane/cyc375.htm
http://www.interlog.com/~lkane/torque.htm
and this page here I had never heard of a hypercharger before and am now gonna look for info on that too. This site claims they are making Feul Injected ones, and that the K&N filter can handle "any ammount of rain" sounds interesting..

.... gives me more ideas for my car.

What year of 993 are you working on?Would you consider a single 2 barrel?

Its a 94, Canadain. Would a single 2 barrel give any performance upgrade over the stock fule injection? If it would then maybe.... it really all comes down to price and performance for me.

I was thinking that a small 2 barrell from a Chevette,or 2.2 Chrysler might work.They are pretty good working holleys.Maybe a throttle body from a 1.3,or 1.6 Suzuki might be bigger.

check the sticky setup 'n' look @ the pics of waynes triple carb setup on his 1L in his porsche ..
you'd have a lot more fun 'n' power if you just swapped in a turbo 3 or gti engine.

My SOHC 1.3 tb is bigger than my 1.0 tb, but they can't be swapped without some kind of adapter.

That looks pretty decent in the back of the porsche... what are all the parts used and how did it go together? What is the final power output on that thing?

wayne custom made (makes?) the adapter plate, you'd want to ask him, however i think he's still off on vacation ..
bolting on a bigger carb to the same old intake isn't going to do you much if any good at all .. and carbs & throttle bodies are entirely different ..

What I plan to do is use a holly 2300 carb. My teacher at FCCJ tells me I would have to change the fuel regulator, and maybe the pump, get higher duration/lift cams and would have to reprogram my ecu for my 94 geo metr0

Keeping the ECU can save you having to do up a fuel-pump cutout circuit, in case of engine stalling, or (hopefully not) an accident.

The fuel pump cutout on the carby cars is real simple - two diodes feeding the pump relay coil. I assume the FI systems have the same relay setup, so you only need to add the diodes - one feeds from the starter solenoid circuit to run the pump whilst you crank, and the other feeds it from the alternator to run the pump when the engine is running.

ford uses an inertia switch,so if you get into an accident, it shuts off the fuel supply. also i would run a fuel regulator with a return so you wouldnt have to change fuel pumps..

I ran mine at 4.5 psi with different springs in the bowls....but generally 2.5-3psi is all you need.

ok, so change the fuel regulator and have about 2.5-5psi should be good, i just have to make shure that the fuel pump is still pumping and get a cutout circut, and maybe remap the ecu, cool sounds easy, with me and my class we should be able to do it, thanks :lol:

Your going to have to install an aftermarket in line FPR. The stock one is on top of the TBI unit.

If you have a look in my profile gallery, you can see how I set up a 4cyl with these carbs.

On suzukird.com they have a 1.0 intake manifold that is already set up to use a carb.
