Isn't this the 'Outlaw' carb That Brit-tek has been selling? This can be a good 
setup and the people that have put them on have been pretty happy with them. 
There is some settup involved with getting these running optimally. Do a search 
on the MGB Experience forum as it has been talked about quite a bit there. If 
you want to switch over to SU's I can understand that as that is all I run But 
the 38 has some real value so you might be able to do a good swap with somone.

Folks, I recently bought a '79 MGA that a PO's mechanic had modified for
him. He replaced the distributor with what my mechanic (one that knows MGs)
says is a 45d4 model. In addition, the Zenith/Stromberg has been replaced
with a Weber model 38 DGES downdraft carb. The car had been partially
de-smogged, and I finished the job by removing the air pump, air injection
manifold, and gulp valve. 

I have a question about the Weber carb. Is the 38 DGES a good fit for this
engine? Would a 32/36 DGV be better? I also may have the opportunity to put
on some SUs to replace the Weber. Is this a better option (I know how to
maintain and adjust SUs).
