Prior to the mid-1980s, every Ford Mustang came equipped with a Mustang carburetor. The Mustang carb takes the air and fuel that's heading towards the engine and properly blends them so your Mustang runs smoothly and efficiently. Therefore, when choosing Mustang carburetor parts for your Mustang, you want to make sure you choose the correct specifications so your Mustang runs perfectly, not too lean or too rich.
To start choosing the correct Mustang carb, you need to calculate the correct CFM (cubic feet per minute), decide between a mechanical secondary or a vacuum secondary Mustang carburetor, and choose what type of choke you want in your Mustang carburetor kit. A Mustang carb is also available in a variety of finishes, so it can look great, too, which is important if your Mustang is a show car. Once you know which Mustang carb you should be purchasing, then you need to follow the instructions carefully for installation, making sure it is properly connected and tuned for your Mustang.
While many Mustang owners replace their Mustang carburetor due to poor performance or failure of the existing Mustang carb, other owners desire an upgrade for better performance or a desire to take their Mustang out on the track. Once the new Mustang carb is installed, a noticeable increase in performance is likely, as your Mustang is going to be running far more efficiently than it was with the old Mustang carburetor that was broken and/or not running at peak efficiency after years of use.
