Triumph TR6 - Triple Z-S Carbs
|Anyone had any experience with the triple stromberg kit from Good Parts? I did a search, but didn't find anything here, and just bits on the net. I know that the shorter manifolds and lower flow per carb will translate to higher intake pressure from reduced pressure drop, but I'd like to hear more.|
I'VE HAD MY EYE ON THIS SETUP ALSO. IF YOU DECIDE TO GET IT AND KNOW OTHERS IN THE MEMPHIS AREA THAT WANT IT, MAYBE WE CAN GET A GROUP DISCOUNT. THE MANIFOLDS, FUEL LINES, COLD AIR BOX, AND FILTER SYSTEM ADD UP $ QUICK.
|Richard Good has this set-up beautifully engineered. He won the Autocross event at VTR in 2002 - Red Deer Minnesota with the fastest time (28,505 secs) in the Modified M4 class driving his 1971 TR6 with triple Strombergs. He runs a shop that does this kind of installation. To look at the quality, finish and workmanship of his green TR6, you would think it was a concours car.|
Try to contact him via the VTR web-site.

BTW, I took 5th in the Stock TR3A class with 36 seconds.
|Yeah - I was thinking of the Good set-up. It looks nice. I already have one of his GP-2 cams and a set of 1.55:1 roller rockers installed. Both work, well Good... But I wondered if anyone elas had the set-up.|
|TR Register web forum has pics of a triple SU set up. No rubber diaphragm to split. Looks like he has used PI manifolds (early type) as basis for mounting the carbs.|

|All--A good owner's site for the Triple Z install is here http://groups.msn.com/Richards69TR6Restoration Check out how he modified the stock air box to fit the triples.|
Also, Jim Swarthout is manufacturing roller rockers and is giving several sets away for evaluation (sorry, they're all spoken for). See http://web.tampabay.rr.com/tr6tech/index.html
