[DML] Re: Contemplating a Carb Swap



2.85 liter PRV's are only 174 cubic inches -- a 2 barrel carb is all you need. I use the same spec carb Ford used on the 171 inch Cologne V6. Naturally aspirated PRV's just simply do not move enough air for a 4 barrel carb. General Motors enthusiasts claim it is impossible to overcarburete with a Rochester (I don't understand how), but it definitely is possible to overcarburete with an Autolite/Motorcraft. 

Check the venturi size on your Bricklin carb (stamped into a circle on the side of the fuel bowl, behind the accelerator pump rod) -- I bet it's 1.21". I use 1.08" on our much smaller PRV's.

I was just driving around in a 1974 Dodge Monaco with a 2-bbl setup that reminded me of just how much power those little things can make.  Plus, it'll be neat to have the DeLorean and the Bricklin using the same carburetor setup.
