in reading the forums, I get the feeling most do not think much of the progressive carb ( single carb set up) on a VW,
whats the reasoning behind this? on our street car (73 superbeetle) has stock carb, but looking to improve perf and mileage, has 009 , plans are to add exhaust, thought about carb improvement,
I'll listen to all who comment.
Thanks

Weber progressive carbs are hit and miss. Some work, MOST dont. The castings are poor quality and they develope internal vacuum leaks that are non repairable.

If you want a great carb improvement, look for a used Dellorto 36 and manifold. Excellent reliable carb, and you can find them for about $150 if you look.
