I run the Weber 38/38 on my 258. It works great. Off idle response is excellent, I havent had any issues at all out of it. It hasn't flooded out or stalled yet on an incline.

I have a Weber 34/34 right out of the box with no fuel pressure regulator and mine runs amazing. It doesn't hesitate or studder at all on inclines...

I run a Weber 32/36 on my CJ. I didn't need an electric fuel pump (just my stock Jeep one), but I do use a fuel pressure regulator. The Weber is set up for about 3.5psi and the fuel pump puts out @7psi.

The Weber was easy to install and tune. I haven't had any problems with it at all!
