    Default Well its two fold

    They have larger venturis and do flow better but then they have all the emmissions garbage and things that make them more compicated then necessary.

    The round tops are simply better for lack of sophitication, a simple easy to tune and balance carb that will make great power threw the L6.

    With all things said and done the earlier carbs are the better carbs and carb of choice.

    If you are running a # 36 intake manifold hang on to it and just change the carbs. You will be vary happy with them as they are easy to tune and work great. They use the same intake that you have you just need the linkage and air cleaner for the SUs. You might contact Ztherapy . They are the A # 1 source for info on these.

    Hey Z people, I belive that the good people at Ztherapy refer to the flat tops as, and I quote "boat anchors"! They wont even take them as cores. If I was you I would deffinatly get a set of round tops, e-bay seem to be a great sorce for them. From what I understand about the 36 intake manifold flows better hard to find though. You might be able to get the same performance if you had some work done to the E88 to get it to flow better.

    Rock on Z people
    Matt-
