The 38mm DGAS synchronous carb should be the only consideration if the engine is in the future, or currently, going to have any level of additional engine modification. Such as headers, free flowing exhaust, a cam, or rebuilt engine. Usually these motors will be improved over stock with oversize pistons and towing cam. The 38 will enhance the improvements of any of these items.

The 38 DGAS synchronous carburetor when supplied in kit form from REDLINE is also pre-calibrated for use on stock or slightly modified motors and will not be over carbureted. It also provides the best starting point for engines that are ultimately going to be upgraded with additional performance Items with performance over fuel economy being the ultimate goal.

In recent years there has been a host of warnings, websites, listings, and blogs that contradict each other on what is a WEBER and what is a "GENUINE" WEBER - and we found a link that lays out the situation so that discerning buyers can be educated before they buy. The best price is not always the best buy. Here is a link that really explains it well:

Weber has long been acknowledged as the manufacturer of the best carburetors available....ANYWHERE.  Legendary marques like Alfa Romeo, Aston Martin, Ferrari, Lamborghini and Maserati have been closely linked with the products of the equally legendary Edorado Weber S.P.A. of more than 50 years.  While various producers of racing and high performance induction systems have moved in and out of the limelight over many decades, Weber alone maintains its worldwide superiority. The foundation of Weber's supremacy is no mystery.  It's nothing more than the traditional virtues of careful design, meticulous manufacturing standards and uncompromising quality control, coupled with that unique Italian attribute of elegance in design. Do not confuse this with WeberNorthAmerica - not the same company. Weber North America brands various carburetors as "WEBER's" under a licensing agreement but they are NOT the legendary Italian designed and European built WEBER. REDLINE uses exclusively the European WEBER carburetors in their conversions. The Original Italian Engineered and designed 38 DGAS series WEBER carb is often copied, sometimes licensed - but there is only one original. The price of perfection is being admired to the point of being copied (EMPI branded carbs) or creating the illusion of being a DGAS when you are not. Get the perfect carb for your conversion - a 38 DGAS from Redline. Sometimes it is tough to improve on the original - and the 38 DGAS was the first and is still the benchmark by which all 2 bbl carburetor conversions are measured.
