on a Twincam
|At the time we were ready for Dyno testing, new Weber carbs
were quite difficult to find so we decided to also test the carb
in the pictures above, the Japanese OER carb. This carb is a reproduction
of the Weber and fits on the same manifold.
|To get a reference measurement we first tested the Twincam with
the stock carb, the only modification was the Supertrapp pipes.
In total we spent 3 days testing both the Weber and the OER with
lots of different jets and emulsion tubes, with and without a
fuelpump, and concluded that the Weber was the better carb. Both
had similar horsepower and torque but the OER kept running much
too rich in the midrange, no matter what we tried.
Comparing the graphs above you can see that
the Weber gave a very significant increase in torque and horsepower
compared to stock, now it was time to go from prototype parts
to production parts.

for the use of his dyno
