I've been reading many posts regarding carb recommendations, however, most are quite old with non-working links/etc. I am looking for the latest thoughts on this subject - I am sure there are many opinions!
The last owner of 02605 decided to use a Quick Fuel 750 E85 carb set up and it is horrible. I do not want to bother with E85 - I don't see the need for it in a Pantera that isn't supercharged and will never see a dragstrip!
My Pantera (built Feb 1972) has the original open chamber heads, stock D1ZE-9425-BB manifold, ANSA headers/mufflers and I am told by one of the prior owners that they put domed pistons in when the engine was rebuilt (bored .030 over, 11:1 compression). The cam specs are unknown.
The car will be used for spirited driving, cruising and car shows. I am coming out of a 2008 Porsche Turbo that had 500hp so I do enjoy brisk acceleration.
I am looking to confirm the carb CFM sizing, mech or vac secondaries, and I am open to buying a new intake if needed.
I really appreciate the advice as I am trying to make a decision quickly!
