1973 Honda Civic


I used the car mainly for ice racing in the winter, but also participated in road and oval events. It had a 'stroker' crankshaft so displaced 1.3L, vs the stock 1.2L. It has a performance cam, header, and sidedraft DCOE weber when I got it. I adapted a later model distributor to get rid of the points and also tried a downdraft Weber DGV. The DGV provided better throttle response and also seemed to make better top-end power. Single sidedrafts (with 2 barrels) don't work well on a 4 cylinder car.

    Sidedraft carburetor used as factory equipment on several Italian cars but more commonly used on custom and race vehicles.
