ive benn messing about with the metra 65 for a while now, and wanted to see if i could bump it up a notch on another motor.
I have a 21mm delorto phbh, and have case matched the motor to the kit.
i was going to run a 21mm intake made out of a minerelli exhuast and run the carb forward but was wondering if it was going to be a huge issue with the intake on the metra 65 supposably being a 19mm intake hole. I have a dremel, but is it ok to just open that up a bit?
Is that just too much carb for that setup?
Lastly i noted ( again ) when case matching this today, that i dont dremel all the way to where the gasket marker method shows - if you do , it leaves a very slim margin on the clutch side, and looks like its just inviting and air leak.
Seems like the only way around that would be to weld a bead around the outside and grind it down..in which case im wondering ...why arent i just using a goddamn 80cc?
