Webers for the e type

First hand experience is always the best. I would not trade any slight improvement vs the reliability, simplicity of the SU carbs.

If I had a set of triple Webers intended for an XK engine, and nothing were fitted yet, then I too would make the attempt to fit them. Even if I had a set of triple SU’s on hand.

As a hobby car I would be under no deadline to get the car perfected by a certain time, so as long as I found the process interesting I’d keep after it. Seems like the closer your engine is to stock, the better the chances of being able to use an established set of parameters and components as others have determined.

Best wishes! It certainly can be done, so it would be great to see you accomplish it!
