What is the Solex on a 73 GT rated at in CFM? Is it rated?
Thought I read somewhere that the '68-'70 Solex (HC engine) flowed 220cfm?oldopelguy said:
So, kinda makes me wonder what a 40DFAV flows . . . you know, the other synchronous carb that fits our stock manifold?!oldopelguy said:
A BMW article I found online (see attached) said this:oldopelguy said:
I was told by my old Weber supplier (Interco parts in NY) that the 40 barely flowed better than the 38, the reason being the venturis were almost the same size. I suspect that on a sub-130 hp engine you'd never notice the difference, since at that power level you can't truly utilize all the airflow a DGAS has anyway, so a DFAV is a moot point. Probably all you'd see is better throttle tip-in response, and a hair more top end speed.tekenaar said:So, kinda makes me wonder what a 40DFAV flows . . . you know, the other synchronous carb that fits our stock manifold?!
