    pinto carb replacement

    Afternoon
    My 2.0 pinto engine is currently fitted with a 32/34 DMTL carb, my question is what would be good replacement for more power?
    would a dgas have any advantage over this or 40s/45s/ which is best suited please?
    Thanks

    If you fit twin 45's then you would need another camshaft, higher CR, distributor with no vacuum advance.
    If you only want to fit another carb and nothing else then a 32/36 DGAV on a suitable manifold will give a few more bhp.
    Fit a decent exhaust manifold and you get some more bhp.
