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
