Capri V6 Carby and intake options

Hi all what do you think about installing this on my DPort motor? It is a DPort intake manifold in W pattern if I am correct with terminology. I have heard about breathing problems with just twin carbs but think the way this is set up is better. I know the triples are the best but not for normal driving, my cars won't be done for racing just for road driving. I have another intake in oval port with twin carbs (all of my carbs are 40DFAV) as well as Dport intake for a single carb. This one is in great condition though.
Would it be wise to install it and would i need to do anything cam wise etc. Thanks Keith

    I just love multiple carb setups on classic cars. Back in the sixties and seventies this was the holy grail of hot cars.
    Today i have a dport with overbore, cam, big valves and ports and heavy springs with roller rockers, higher compression, electronic ignition, electric fuel pump etc. etc.
    So why have i still got a fairly standard carburetor? I would love to have some modified induction. But i also love the  smoothness, throttle response and mpg of the single twin choke. I probably spend 95% of the time cruising and the rest giving it a rev. So i dont know how adding another carb would benifit me especialy if losing the aforementioned qualities.
    Those look like 38dgas  and if so would completely over carb the bottom end and midrange and probably still too much on the top end on a standard motor. Especialy as its got four chokes that open together.
    I was thinking that a couple of 32/36 from a pinto would possibly work better. These are progressive so two chokes would take care of the bottom and mid and then the four chokes would look after the top end. I dont have direct experience with this tho, sorry. But there are others on this forum that could steer you straight. Cheers,...ron.

    Hi just a quick one regarding deciphering vin plates. 3000gt has said regarding the green v6 gt that in the front and rear suspension S and S stands for standard front and standard rear suspension. One of my cars has C and C in those spots and is also a 71 v6 auto so what does that mean. I heard somewhere about country suspension is that it or what is the difference. Keith

    G'day Keith,
     
    Very interesting.
     
    One of mine is a 2/70 and has both the front and rear axle areas on the Plate left blank as well.
     
    It was tought that it just got skipped on the Production Line, but open to any and all theories.
     
    Info is in a old thread somewhere I think.
     
    My Engine Numbers are JE1628B and JE1778B, from memory. JE1628B has the blank Front and Rear Axle Areas.
     
    Watching with keen interest.
     
    DJC.

    I notice too that ours are 30 numbers different engine wise so maybe we can track down the slack arse that was stamping cars that time of year.

    C is country suspension. From what a few of us have put together, the main difference is ride height. The spring seat on the struts is slightly higher than standard suspension, and from what I have found the rear springs have uplifters/stiffeners.

    The CK18 stamp will be a typo, and have seen it once before.

    The vin with the C stamps is my newest car. I have official Ford Letters for all but three cars now so I will get the Verification letter from Ford and see what it says. Are you all sure regarding it meaning country? Also how to determine the different struts? Maybe why someone somewhere cursed their blessed capri so many times as to why it leaned to the left or right after they bought a new strut and couldn't work out why. Also different suspension for country and city bought cars seems odd to me in a two door sports coupe.

    There is this on ebay: http://www.ebay.com.au/itm/Capri-V6-Triple-Intake-Manifold-/291581671982?hash=item43e39f3a2e
     
    It is a modified production manifold - badly made, but a good attempt at some thing different.
