Doesn't the choke work? Did you jet the carb, or just install it straight out of the box and leave it that way? If properly jetted, mileage should be quite similar to stock.

Yes everything works, however the carb hasn't been jetted yet. I don't know how to jet it, also my mechanic says I don't have to jet it. Right now theres white smoke from the exhaust, this indicates a lean mixture, so I don't really know if jetting is required.

Your mechanic doesn't sound like the sharpest tool in the shed. :lol:

White smoke indicates burning coolant from a blown head gasket or a cracked head. Lean mixtures don't make smoke, rich ones make black smoke, burning oil makes a bluish-white or gray smoke.

Go take an automotive class at Los Angeles Pierce College, East Los Angeles College, or Los Angeles Trade Tech. :wink:

I highly doubt its a blown head gasket, theres only small puffs of white smoke only when I revv the engine, not while idling I still think that its a lean mixture but I'am not 100% sure, theres only has been white puffs of smoke since I adjusted the carb, where as before there was black smoke indicating a rich mixture. The car also doesn't overheat either, temps are normal.

I was serious about the taking a class thing. You'd be much happier understanding how things work on your car and being able to repair them yourself rather than having to pay a "mechanic".

Good luck. Maybe I'll see you up there if you frequent the same roads as I.

Thanks, my car was rubbing on the right turns, I managed to get rid of the rubbing, my front left tire was sticking out considerably and was rubbing on the right turns. It turns out the camber was horribly misaligned. My friend who owns Kindred Motorsports was able to help me adjust the camber to 0 on the front two wheels. Now the rubbing is mainly gone, except for when I turn the steering completely to the left or the right. But, for the most part the rubbing is almost gone, with the 195/60/14 tires there not much I can do at this point, but I'm satisfied. My rear two tires still have to be replaced before I push the car on the corners and the mountains.

One thing that has always bothered me was the ride height on a stock AE82 seems excessively high, especially with the 13" wheels that the car comes equipped with. Ever since lowering my AE82, I feel a noticible improvement in handling and definately looks better in my opinion.

Hey guys, I need help tuning my Weber 38. I switched out my idle jets from 45 to 40. The carb seems to be running a lot better, I also advanced the timing a bit. However, the carb floods on angles (hills), and sometimes when I accelerate from a stop, it bogs really bad and I have to go WOT to clear up the carb. Would lowering the float level help get rid of the bogging/flooding? Thanks.

Oh heres a picture of me and my friend's AE82 Sedan, we're twins lol.

Those AE82s handle like go carts when they are lowered.. fun lil cars. My friend who lowered his and my car, had an 85 brown 4 door and I had an 86 white Nova(Sprinter) 4 door. Talk about head turners when they are done up. :)

With the cam acceleration and power has improve dramatically. With a lot more torque at the mid rpm range, and power until the 6k redline.

A newer honda accord tried to race me on a twisty road I lost him completely on the corners it wasn't until the end that on a straight away that he finally appeared, but he was about 2 to 3 seconds behind me. At that point it was pretty much over.

...complete with the shocked Accord driver screaming "IIE DORIFTO??!?" after the last corner. :lol:

I had never thought of these cars as being cool before. Nice work.
