This topic has been covered here and beat to death before. I have a NOM 2.0Spica setup in my sedan. Never been fond of it. When it's cold out, runs like a champ. When it gets hot, hard to start occasionaly and never been able to find out mistery hesitation, loss of power under load and stalling with more hard starts.

Found my original weber carbs attached to the manifold that have been off the car for about 25 years. Started tinkering around with them and started getting visions of velocity stacks and glorious musical sounds coming from them at high revs. Why should I stick with the spica (which I think is the culprit) when glistening weber's are just a daydream away? Mechanically I think I would do better with the carb setup. Comments, insults, swearing is welcomed:p

I know that a properly tuned spica system is more efficient and makes just as much power if not more than the average carb setup. I know i'm going to get blasted for being the typical guy to blame a spica setup with problems I don't have properly diagnosed.

I just think carbs would be easier for me to maintain and understand better. So with that being said, what do you think is better for the average mecahnically inclined person?:eek:

That's the feedback I've been looking from members. Personal experiences from both sides of the camp? Why would the carbs be harder to tune over the spica? I know that once a spica system is tuned right it will stay that way longer than carbs, but aren't carbs simpler in design with less things likely to go wrong?

Done! sent you a pm.

I guess I never really wanted to give the spica a chance since sidedraft webers have a certain "cool factor" for me. That is why I want someone to talk me out of this ordeal.
