my mates just bought a metro turbo engine with 42,000 miles on it , hes wanting to run it on a weber 45 ,however i think hel need to alter the compression ratio to suit , i may add he only has the full block, head and gearbox but no turbo or plenum ,hence the carb route, any thoughts on this thanks,

No benefit to running a standard 63hp engine on a Weber, probably happier on an su. They should run well in NA tune at 9.4 standard turbo compression.

He's just adding complication that isnt needed.
Turbo SU works, is easy enough to tune and easier to fit.

Although why bother with a turbo engine...and no turbo ? Seems pointless...and even less worth doing a DCOE.

9.85 @ 145mph
202mph standing mile
speed didn't kill me, but taxation probably will

only reason hes using the turbo engine is he got it for peanuts as the guy just wanted rid of it out his garage as he was moving away and couldnt be arsed shifting it
