im in Ireland and dont have the money to fork out on expensive conversions, Im planning to do as much if not all myself with the help offriends, Im hoping my only cost will be parts.
Can you tell me more about bike carbs? I have heard about that before.........
Don't know for the 155. Possibly lots of mods as bike engines tend to be very compact so the carb centres are smaller than equivalent car engines. Then you will need to figure how to feed them with cool filtered air. Mods to throttle cable and a choke linkage of some description. There's a novelty after injection a manual enrichment device = choke!
spoke to a mechanic friend who is very experienced with 75s and gtv's. He says there is no performance gain to be had by converting to carbs unless you do engine mods while ur at it such as upgraded cams and pistons etc. so I'm gonna drop the idea of a carb conversion until such time as i decide to do those upgrades, all in I dont have the cash at the mo.
A carb conversion would cost you a fortune in fuel too. Expect 20-25 mpg maximum, and you'd need a custom manifold and air box sorting out, and then change the fuel pump to reduce the system pressure from about 5 bar to 5 psi (about 0.3 bar).
I don't know if you have emissions tests as part of the NCT in Ireland, but over here you'd really struggle to pass the MOT requirements with a carb conversion.
Yes - quite possible. Why do you want to do it? As above the carbs are still cheap but a lot of mods to do and MOT emissions may be difficult as the lamda sensor has nothing to feedback to and control.
