Everybody tell me what they think of this Shelby Mustang that was at the show a few weeks ago.

It's a really cool car and I love the engine. Apparently, it essentially has a carburetor for each cylinder. I'm sure the thing is fast! Let me know what you think.

(Really wish it was my car... :) )

The picture is almost an injustice to the car. It was immaculate. I really loved it. I'd love to ride, or better yet own that car.

I've got some other Shelby Mustang Pictures I can post if anybody wants them.

Let me know.

I don't think they were 8 seperate carbs, the inline 4's used to be a big show item. You're right though, they were hard to tune. If I remember correctly, Autolite made one version of them.

You both are slightly wrong...

This car is technically fuel injected.

However, it basically is 8 carbs, one for each chamber, but it is classified as fuel injected.

:)

That's what the guy at the show told us anyway....

Fuel injected? Really? That is wild. I have seen the itake manifolds before to hold 8 one barrel carbs, but they were never fule injected.

That's interesting. The only thing I ever saw them referred to as was in line 4 barrel carburetors.

Don't worry about sounding mean, all I'm talking about is from memory. I thought they were called inline 4 barrels, and there were two of them used. I have an old Autolite manual around somewhere that may have them in it. Maybe they considered it to be a fuel injection, as technically carburetors inject fuel, just not in the sense that TBI, TPI, SPFI, and all the other high pressure means of fuel injection do it. If you look closely, it appears as though there are float chambers around each barrel. Again, let me see if I can find the info on this.

That's slightly different than the one on the cobra at the beginning of the post. Notice the spacing of the ram tubes. Yours are evenly spaced, the ones in the first post are closer in the middle. That's why I thought they were the old autolite inlines. Still haven't found that manual though.

I just meant the only thing I've seen that style called was an individual intake runner system. ;) The 4.6 cobra style is fuel injected.
