yep thats the one !!!
umm power output 16v on carbs ... well the 137ish bhp was with injection and 40mm throttle bodies, but all via the factory plenum / airflow meter..... also it would have left the factory with mapping that was a fair compromise between power / mpg / service life......
the 40mm carbs are the same throat size as the throttle body.. BUT .. the choke is of course smaller....mine have 30mm - better for the low end road use side of things...
its a funny one mate, you can argue it either way,... im going to get mine rolling road tuned / re-jetted,... so will see what the power is like. i would hope its at least 137bhp, if not then the carbs are the wrong thing to do - - or i did something very wrong when rebuilding the engine,,, im fingers crossed for 140 ish with the mild head work and megajolt ignition ?
