up to you...if you can do it yourself and have access to another car to cut the appropriate section out from,it would seem to be an ok price. But if you are paying someone else,I think it will end up too expensive to be viable...

I had a 1994 Clio with a Weber Twin, they go like the shit (ask Scott lmao) and I took the air filter off mine haha the noise was wonderful when accelerating.

Id go for the Weber but it depends what its gonna need for the MOT?

Im pretty sure the one Pingu is looking at has a pair of twin choke webbers fitted, not a single "twin" choke carb wink

Carbs make a lovely noise, but need a lot of specialist setting up to get good power from them - especially if its an engine designed for fuel injection - Throttle Bodies are the way forward - carbs is backwards technology, and they can give problems due to the conversion required frown
