Berg 42 specials are the ultimate in driveability and power. Require ported heads such as GB 856 or better. GB 860 all the way up to GB 870 heads provide even greater gains in power with absolutely no loss in mileage, low end or driveability. GB 860-on require GB 932S or larger exhaust system, dependent upon combination.
The Berg 42mm Weber Special carbs are redrilled and circuited to match specific VW engine applications. Each set is calibrated by our experts to work from idle to top RPM with the correct fuel flow rate and progression with all Berg parts. This ensures proper running throughout the RPM range without flat spots, lean, or rich conditions. Gives maximum performance with best fuel efficiency. Gives more available fuel/air for maximum cooling than any other Weber or Dellorto. Air cleaners are K & N wet element and come pre-oiled. Requires GB 622 distributor (and the tuning instructions that come with the distributor), GB 624 Gene Berg Igniter or a Stinger electronic ignition. If you already have a Bosch 009 request the Berg copyrighted instructions for GB 622 at the time you order your engine kit. Not designed for road race type driving or off-road. SW 25#
Kits for sedan, bus, KG, and Type III.
Note: Manifolds can be drilled and tapped for power brakes. Please specify if using on a bus that requires this.
