As a voice in the wilderness, have you considered fuel injection? You can put together a gm based throttle body injection system for about what it will cost you to buy the weber. For me, going to a weber was trading one set of issues for another. tuned, jetted, re-tuned and never got the thing set up well enough for my liking. It had lots of power across the range but couldn't get better than 13mpg. I finally pulled it off and put the fuel injection system on and haven't looked back. Now I have fuel delivery and ignition control no matter the altitude, no matter what incline I'm on, and consistently get better than 17 mpg around town. It starts cold, hot, or whenever and my gas smell is gone. Some folks just prefer a carb and if so then that's just fine. Just trying to suggest that isn't the only option.
