Got my new Weber 38DGES Carb. I wish installation was as easy as this! I opted for the larger 38 synchronized carb instead of the usual 32/36 progressive because I plan on doing some mods to my motor. I'd like to put in a nice cam and deck the head. My next purchase will be a header and a hi-flow cat for it.

It definitely helped with power through the whole range. I just took a nice long power drive and was able to get it up to 85 in 4th gear. I couldn't even do that in 5th gear before at all, so I'm impressed. I love the sound too. It sounds like a cold air intake from under the hood every time I hit the throttle. I was very surprised about that since I wasn't expecting it to sound so cool. I'm definitely glad that I went with the Outlaw 38 instead of the 32/36 progressive. I'm sure the other one would have been just fine but I don't want just "fine". My daily driver is a turbo GTI so I guess I'm spoiled now. I want my truck to perform too

The installation was a little tough I guess. I'm a pretty experienced mechaninc too. I think the hardest part was that their directions could have been a little more specific for my model. They were pretty vague but I figured it all out. Thank goodness I happen to have the vacuum hose diagram from the factory manual or I would have been a bit lost. It really helped. There's a lot of stuff that you just do away with when you put these on.
