I'm looking into upgrading the FI system on one of my cars to megasquirt and mgd ignition. Does anyone have a weber dcoe manifold for an 8v TR7 they are not using? This would speed up the process considerably. I know that 6 cyl and 8 cyl offer more power, but that's been done, so i'm looking for a different challenge. If it works for the 8v it should work for the Sprint as well.

I found an dual 40DOCE intake manifold for my standard head TR7 and I've also seen one fro the Dolomite Sprint head on eBay. They're rare and I'm looking for one myself and a Sprint head.

Keep checking eBay and the UK version of eBay. One may turn up.

If you see one and don't want it, let me know.

Good luck,

Larry

Did send private reply to you. If it didn't show up I'll put it here.

Dear Navydiver:
Looked at what I have and you have to decide if this works for you. First wish was to rebuild my engine with .30 over higher compression Euro 9:25 to 1 pistons, rather that the lower compression U.S. pistons. Then I plan to install the header and low restriction exhaust system I have. Also will put in a higher performance cam from TS Imported Automotive in Ohio. Will all that, I had a lengthy conversation with the Pierce Manifold people out in California, told them my intentions and asked which DCOE's. They said the 45's. Then I asked them to jet these carbs accordingly, which they did. (There is a formula to get this correct and they certainly did. So the boxes say "rejetted" on them for exactly those reasons.
You wouldn't want twin 45's on a stock American motor as it would be overkill, so to speak. So only buy them if you plan to bump up your motor a bit.........which I assume is the whole reason anyone would ever go with twin DCOE's in the first place.
Intake manifolds are rare if non-existent for this motor as everyone knows.
So what I have is:

2 Weber 45 DCOE carburetors
2 Chrome box type air filters
1 Complete linkage set
1 Intake manifold (bought second hand but not sure if it was ever mounted.)
ALL NEW IN ORIGINAL BOXES

I figured I have ~ $1200.00 in this.

Would take $1000.00 to make it worth parting with but you would have the coolest, best performing TR-& 8 Valve around.

Had to trash an old TR-7 I bought, for excessive rust, and never got around to rebuilding that motor. Picked up a nearly new looking '80 Drop-top and it runs so well, stock, I hesitate to mess with it at this time. However, should this not sell, will eventually get to the motor with changes noted above.
Think hard. If you like, we can Skype of FaceTime and I will show you the parts firsthand.
love,
Tom
