3.4 Carb

Recommended Posts

hey all! :waving: New to the forum here. I just bought back my first vehicle, an 86 4x4 longbed! The Guy that I sold it to originally replaced the junk 2.8 with a 3.4 out of a 94 firebird. He used the 2.8 manifold and carb and i was wondering if anyone had any suggestions on what other 2BBL carbs can be used on these motors. Not wanting to buy a Weber and have more money in the carb than I spent to buy the truck back! I just want anything better than the old worn out rochester thats on it now. Oh yea the soon to be father in law has an 89 2wd sportruck with a blown motor that hes giving me for free. Plan on swapping the drivetrain to the short bed! All that aside what are some good 2bbl carbs that you all have used or seen used as I need a replacement. Thanks!

I think the Weber you don't want to buy is going to be your best bet. It is proven, and when you buy it, it will be jetted for that application. Gettin a junkyard carb is going to be a trial and error, and maybe end up costing as much as a weber would in the end. Thats if you can even find a carb in a junkyard anymore! And if you really want to spend some money, you could get a 4bbl intake and mount a holley 390cfm 4 bbl carb! But I think you made it clear, thats not what youre after.... just saying! Just get the Weber kit, you won't regret it.
