To help make the right choice for your future needs
In the past there have been questions and much miss
information put out on the choice of a 32/36 DGEV carb or the 38 DGAS
The Kits utilizing the 32/36 Progressives Weber are designed
to provide the market with an economical performance carburetor conversion
that while increasing Hp also improves drivability and fuel economy over the
stock carburetor. The kits using the 32/36 progressive carburetor
is the optimum carburetor for use as a replacement carburetor for
a worn out or hard to maintain factory carb.
When purchased in kit form, the REDLINE kit with the
38mm DGAS carb will perform on a stock unmodified engine without any problems.
This is not going to be an over carburetion situation.
It will provide considerably more
initial torque and acceleration but the top end performance will not be
significantly improved over the 32/36 when used on a stock motor.
The 38mm DGAS carb should be the only consideration if the
engine is in the future or currently going to have any level of additional
engine modification. Such as headers, free flowing exhaust, a cam, or rebuilt
engine. Usually these motors will be improved over stock with oversize pistons
and towing cam. The 38 will enhance the improvements of any of these items.
The 6 cylinder engine applications are particularly enhanced by this
application. In-fact on ALL JEEP and LAND CRUSER applications with any upgrades
this is a mandatory choice. Other wise the progressive will require extensive re-calibration to work properly.
When using a 32/36 in the above situations will
require additional calibration and rejetting to attain the desired performance
and standard fuel economy. There is a jet kit available for just this reason.
The jetting is required due to the performance enhancements of the additional
modifications. Although the 32/36 does out perform the original, to receive the full
benefit of your investment the 32/36 will require helpful re-calibration. The
38 DGAS is the optimum choice and has a larger fuel delivery
system and the calibration to handle the broader range of improved performance
and improves substantially your other product investments.
While the 32/36 progressive carb will improve your fuel
economy on a stock motor over the OEM carb. The 38 Synchronous carb will not
get less fuel economy than the OEM carb.
The 32/36 DGV progressive carburetor as used in any REDLINE kit is pre-calibrated and set to run on most normal standard and stock
engines and provide a performance and fuel economy improvement. If that engine
has been upgraded or improved with other performance items there will be a
need to recalibrate or rejet the carburetor in some situations. There is a
performance jet kit just for the Jeep applications Pt No. 701-DGV.
The 38 DGAS synchronous carburetor when supplied in kit form
from REDLINE is also pre-calibrated for use on stock or slightly
modified motors and will not be over carbureted. It also provides the best
starting point for engines that are ultimately going to be upgraded with
additional performance Items with performance over fuel economy being the
