Well, yes and no. (1.5 vs 1.75 as "the
hot set-up").

A lot depends upon state of tune. But I
am about to find out.

My current engine is a 1293 to basically
Cooper "S" spec., exept for compression
ratio. I have a new HIF44 at my disposal,
originally purchased to take the place of
the Holley which comes standard with the
Judson blower I may (or may not!!) install
after engine "break-in".

I am currently in contact with APT and
am awaiting word on intake manifold and
proper needle and spring for state of tune as I have decided to give
this carb a try
in the "normally aspirated" mode.

For all I know, Mr. Anton may recommend
a 1.5 instead of the 1.75....we'll see.

A buddy of mine just got his 1.5 set-up
(I've been letting him use the 45DCOE
I was supposed to send to "iron" Mike
in the meantime!!) for his stock 1275
with suitable settings (his old twin 1.25's
were leaking air so he said the hell with

I should be taking his car for a drive by
next weekend when he has the set-up
installed and will report my experience
in this regard should anyone be interested.

He's using an Osellie Torquemaster manifold, I believe. Supposed to be
of the best.

Then I'll clean up the "45" and send it along to "patient" Mike, all set
up for
his 1380!!
