OUR ONLINE CHECKOUT is CLOSED and we are NOT accepting any NEW orders at this time.

We are still fulfilling and shipping previously submitted and/or delayed order requests (as product availability allows) UNTIL NOVEMBER 15th 2022.

But after November 15th, all still pending backordered unshipped items will be automatically CANCELLED **(except for any special ordered drop-shipped or made/machined-to-order items).

Our ability to respond to emails is greatly hampered by being under-staffed during this downsize transition time. But we continue to endeavor to answer email inquiries as best we can. And we will continue responding to emails through until early March 2023 because we are wholly committed to resolving any other issues that may arise from previous sales. It is still UNCERTAIN, but we may re-open a substantially downsized version of our store again in the Spring of 2023.

We sincerely appreciate your patience, understanding during this period of restructuring and/or closing. And a huge thank you to all of you whose support and loyalty we have been the beneficiary of over the 23 years that we have worked diligently to support the information and parts needs of the aircooled VW community!

Item Features
We have a LOT of experience setting up dual webers (25+ years!), so we offer and strongly recommend our Carb Setup Service to you when you buy your carburetors from Aircooled.Net! Frankly, if you try to bolt up your dual weber kit as supplied by Weber, you will have problems more often than not!

So choosing the Carb Setup Service is completely optional and up to you, but STRONGLY RECOMMENDED. It's actually a bit of a pain, and time consuming to do properly, which is why ACN is the only company that offers this service on Weber purchases! The Carb Setup Service includes fixing known and unknown problems and Weber assembly errors, clean, set floats, trim gaskets, etc. Then we reassemble with the correct jets and emulsion tubes for your engine and elevation! Finish it off with a final bench adjustment so that YOUR setup time and headaches are minimized! Carb Setup Service INCLUDES JET CHANGES (Free jets!), the expense of the proper jets can exceed what we charge for the setup, so it's a great deal for you!

It doesn't matter WHICH dual weber kit you buy from us, ICTs, IDF, IDAs, we will give them the same attention to your carbs as if they were ours about to go on our own engine! When you select this option, Jet changes are included, but venturi costs are additional FOR THE PARTS ONLY. With the cost of jets and especially emulsion tubes, that alone makes it worth it!

We have the carburetor expertise to select your emulsion tubes, idle jets, main jets, and air jets, regardless of the elevation you will be driving at, all you will have to do is assemble, adjust and GO! Obviously you must have your fuel pressure set to 3-3.5psi, but if the engine is in good mechanical shape your bench time will turn into driving time!

5 of 5 So much better... January 20, 2014
Reviewer: David Murphy from Brooklyn, NY United States  
I started out with a 2.2L waterboxer with a single carb setup so switching to dual carbs was a no brainer with no FI gear left on my engine.  The difference in power was shocking.  I am now passing people on the freeway without hesitation.  
The kit assembly is Erector Set easy, but the tuning is a formidable challenge without previous experience. If you have the time or experience, it is well worth the power gains over the stock engine.

The real saving grace is John's email support.  He is helpful above and beyond  and that is worth far more than the pile of parts you're buying.   Also expect to spend another $500+/- on other gear if you don't have it.

Some things you will need to consider in advance:
-get the vacuum line pre-tapped into one manifold if you have power brakes. It is not included in the kit and will save you a lot of time.
-make sure you have a appropriate distributor and coil, and sparkplugs
-necessary tools: timing light, snail guage, AFR meter/sensor
