nutter, rush and carb question.

I am planning on dumping the Carter BBD for a Weber 38 DGES. I also intend to do the Nutter Bypass and Team Rush. What I need to know is, since I am replacing the carb do I have to do all the upgrades at once or can I space them out? I was gonna replace carb one weekend, then maybe do the Nutter another weekend and finish it up with the Rush upgrade another weekend. I figured maybe Rush could wait but that I would probably have to Nutter the same time I replace the carb because of the computer. It would be easier for me to space the upgrades out but I didn't know if I could drive the Jeep with the new carb until I did the Nutter? Would appreciate any insight on this. Also, when I do the Nutter, can I completely remove the computer unit or does it need to stay under the dash? Thanks in advance for your help.

I would do the carter last. Do, the nutter, make sure you have it running right, check your timing, then once you are happy, do the teamrush. After everything is stabilized, do your carb swap. I have the exact same engine as you and I have the weber 38 DGES, so if I can help, post on the board, I check in a good bit.

The nutter takes like 15 minutes. Teamrush doesn't take that long either, an hour tops.

Thanks for the reply monkeyhouse. If Nutter is that quick then I may do carb and Nutter at same time. Do you like the 38 DGES?

No I love it. I actually did the nutter first and then did a rebuild on my carter, then decided I wanted the weber. Once I put it in, it was like I had a new jeep. I mean wow, the power I was getting. I did the teamrush afterward. There is a very goo thread on the weber install, give it a read.

Here's a good link on cleaning up the vacuum mess:

In case you don't have them here are two great threads for the nutter and teamrush respectively:

One more question, did you remove the computer or just leave it under the dash?
