    I had the carb on my 84 GT worked up at that place after reading this article.

    I used to be a fan of magazine articles, back when they taught ya something, how to do things, save money, etc... then later I began to see less and less of that, and realized and saw more and more of that when it says SOURCES, it should say SPONSORS. Probably all I should say about that and the above article. Apparently 'Pony Carburetors' (RIP to the owner who's name I can't recall right now) had a good recipe for smartening up 4180's... but details are shared nowhere...

    Cool, and the results of your worked up carburetor were...?

    Nothing too much to update on the carburetor right now... haven't had time... spring rush... an item of interest just finished up is a '65 289 Mustang's original Autolite 4100 4-barrel (a version of which Summit Racing calls there's now) rebuild. For a short while today, I continued to get a secondary metering block ready for the E5Z 4180

    Hey Walking Tall . The car ran incredible after that . My plan is to try and get that car back on the road after sitting for a mere 20 years. I also have 4 or 5 other magazine with articles about tuning a 4180 . Let me know if You want me to scan and put on here .

    Nice. Up to you, the articles might be helpful to somebody. Information is the name of the game of this thread.

    Got in a 1984 Mustang (GT-350) E4ZE 4180 to go through today. Pretty original, kinda crunchy dirty, seized secondaries, etc., etc....

    When I order a kit and stuff for it, I will order what's needed for our E5ZE we've been working on throughout this thread

    Sincere apologies to anybody who has been witnessing the loud and unmistakable sound of crickets in this thread. Atlantic Nationals is here this week/weekend, and I am up nearly past my eyeballs with carburetor work right now. Hopefully in a week or so things will slow down a bit and I can get back at our 4180. I am very much looking forward to it being put to the test to see how she works... stick around...
