Triple Weber Carb - Dcoe45 (152/g) 3, 4 Or 5 Stage?
Posted 01 June 2017 - 06:44 PM
Which one is better for street and some track days, 3, 4, or 5 stage???
Is there any difference from the reproduction Weber carbs? (Like new ones from redline for example) or better rebuilding original old ones??

Didn't know if that there was 5 either until I stumbled across this

I have a 3 Progression Weber DCOE, and it can be driven and used normally but the butterfly does not sit directly under the first hole. You can richen up the idle jet as I have done and it drives normally with no issues except you will use more fuel due to the richer idle jet.
Also when you are driving at low constant rpm it can run lean as it has not exposed the first Progression Hole. Am looking at drilling a 4th hole in mine but this project is temporarily on hold...
Hope this helps

What fuel pump do you recommend??
On carbs like weber / mikuni generally a pump that produces 3-4 psi of pressure coupled with a fuel pressure regulator. I believe the standard mechanical pump is capable of this but I've yet to test it fully.

Obviously the age of the mechanical pump would probably affect its output.
I use a carter p4070 - which has a high volume output at relatively low pressure (4-6psi)... they sometimes advertise it as not requiring a pressure regulator but as previously mentioned you generally want around 2.5-3psi for webers.
I use a holly pressure regulator - can't remember the part number sorry, but I'm sure google will answer all if you search. Have run this set up for many years now and never had an issue except my crap/cheap fuel pressure gauge breaking.
