Tiger 289 Carburettor Choice

Post by iangiles » Thu Apr 06, 2006 9:33 am

I have a late Mk.1A with a fairly standard 289 lump. What would you consider the best carburettor choice for road use? Thanks!

do you have headers or stock manifolds?

holley four barrel 4160 - about 500 CFM assuming a rev limit of about 6000.

can't go wrong with that.

Hi,

If you still retain the two barrel manifold you have only a couple of options in the Autolite (original) or the Holley 350 or 500 two barrels. As you have the 289 engine with a four barrel manifold, as already stated the Holley 465 or Edelbrock/Carter 500 carburettors do a very good job. I have recently installed a new Weiand manifold and Edelbrock 500cfm carburettor on my stock 260 and I am very impressed. I did have to lean down the carburettor though.

Regards. Robin.
