    Google tool bar has a world translator.

    Axel, this engine is very interesting, but it's cammed for 6500 RPM and that would have to change.
    Then there's the big Weber downdraft carbs........
    They can be, and usually are, a nightmare!
    They are well beyond the ability of all but a few to tune.
    Even if you had the hundreds of parts required;
    the idle jets, the intermediate jets, the main jets, the emulsifier tubes, and all the venturi sleeves, they still require a tremendous amount of experience to tune.
    I know that you're just sharing the info, but I wouldn't touch this w/o a cam change and a Holley 800.
    I really like the exhaust and it looks just stunning!

    yes George, I just found this thing interesting. The carb layout is nothing to go for, how are you gonna sync them? No way...

    I tested a 23" Mirage today and hit 63 mph in rough water with 4400 rpm, I can't catch up with the blue boat anyway
