    Such offers are rare and in my opinion to good to be true
    It would be highly unusual to win a set of these with all the calibration done - never heard of it. However, a brand new setup won't be correct either, so the cost in jets, etc. to achieve the desired result will be pretty much the same either way. Some owners will collaborate and allow their jet collections to used in trial and error fashion with minimal cost, only what remains in the carbs to be bought.

    The last used setup I bought for ~$800 will need very little switched out to work well on a moderately modified engine, i.e. cam and c/r changes only. All told, maybe $200 additional or even less. When I saw what they had in them I felt bad for the seller; he was almost there. But he had already fitted DGVs to his engine and was happy with them.

      jumping into a few of these threads late in the party.

      I have Poolboy carbs, but was looking at that patton rig a few years ago. That is when gas was 4 dollars a gallon. I spoke to Rick a few times, watch all the youtube vids on that installation by him - its probably still out there, and worth the look on how to mod the distributor, fuel lines, etc. In all that, I have this side bar with Ken, and went his route, and never looked back. I had tired carbs, sucking gas, getting me maybe 10 mpg. my carb swap has me in the 30s now, clean plugs, and very good power.

      the ZS is such a dark science to many, even me. After you pull and replace them a few times, the clouds go away - and after you replace a diaphram, bowl components, and leave the needles alone...for the love of god...if Ken sets that stuff, don't touch it. Sure, fiddle with the needles under some supervision, but the rest....just plug and play.

      but for those interested in bring this engine bay into the modern era, call Rick - great guy, and will help you in any way. He has applied this stuff to so much more now - including boats.

      cheers

        Thanks for that endorsement, Chris.
        I'm happy to provide that to my fellow TR6 or 250 owners.

          I would probably stick with carbs in your case. Send them to Poolboy or someone equivalent in terms of expertise, the injection route is going to be way way more involved than simply unbolting, packaging, sending and rebuilding the carbs. If you want an upgrade then I would go to the DCOE side drafts.

          The TBI setup is good for stock engines, a modified engine with hot cam etc then I would only consider a performance injection system powered by megasquirt or equivalent ECU

            Lot of work to do a Megasquirt. Review the 6-Pack article on my car. Would I change some things, yes, but can’t. Will I change some other things, yes.
