It will likely cost way more then it's worth.
I'm sure it's been done but I've never seen it so no idea where you should even look...

Yeah sorry but if you like the carb setup its probably better to buy a car with one..I understand the looks of a carb (old school stuff) but unless you're build a race engine from the ground up there's not really a good reason ”imo” to go backwards to a carb setup..just my opinion.

For the money that set up would cost you could probably drop a 4.6 in..

Ya, I don't know what I would do without mine. I drive my wife's KIA and I'm always reaching for the clutch with my left foot and cussing when pushing the gas doesn't push me into my seat like I'm used to

Re: I want to put a carburetor on my 04 3.8

The only way I would condone swapping to a carburetor is if it was going to be sitting on top of a bored and stroked V8. Otherwise, for a 6 I would keep the injection.

Just my 2 cents...

I loved the way they fit on my car not sure how they will fit on yours but they should look nice, and I'm pretty sure they are lighter because they came off a stock race car, i love these fenders, you should try them and with that black car of yours? Oh yes

They're amazing they will look great when I add them to a Saleen kit

---------- Post added at 09:24 PM ---------- Previous post was at 09:20 PM ----------

The emblem part, there a hole there like the stock one? Hopefully not. They'll be the first to the newer look then the Saleen kit...

As far as the fenders...they come from mrbodykit...that should say it all
