the motor is a 1600cc stock with pertronix and dual cannon exaust.
i dont mind switching to a 009 distributor if needed.
it will see alot of off road dust, so what kind of intake and filters should i use?
what do you think?

i use a K&N air filter sprayed really good with their brand of oil. it is a complete unit with a hose clamp that mounts up directly to my stock carb. around the K&N unit i use a thick, dry foam pre-filter, also from K&N. the filter is washable and re-usable.

but what i realy wanted to ask is what kind of carb setup would give me the best in performance and reliabilety?

If you are running a stock motor, whats wrong with the stock carb? Just place a piece of hose( about 6") over the breather tube in the bore of the carb up into the air filter to prevent fuel sloshing and flooding. Then add a dual element filter as Herbie suggested. The other thing I would add is some sort of support, from the air filter to the top of fan shroud, to keep it from falling offin rough terrain. :oops:

i was just thinking that i could get some more HP when going to a better carb, but i gess not? :roll:

You didn't say which carb you are using now. It depends on the type of terrain you drive on. The class 5 racers use a single pict 30 and go faster then you probably would. Keep it stock for the best lower end torque. My 2 cents, Ol' John

If you can find a zenith on ebay or privatly they are the best if not stick with your stock carb.

914 Dror,
I run DUAL EMPI 40mm SOLEX/BROSOL on my stock 1600 with no problems.

However, If you want better performance over stock carbs and low mantenance then go with a single EMPI Weber 40MM IDF Kit. You can use this on your 1600 or larger size motor.

Good Luck!!

You can also run it on your 914.
