World's most complete 8-stack reference base and source for Weber carburetion and EFI systems

As a professional 8-stack builder specializing in American V8 8-stack applications, this isn’t a sideline... it's all I do.  I started out building and tuning Weber carburetion systems on V8's back in the 70's, and today, we offer Weber carburetion AND state-of-the-art 8-stack EFI systems.  This year, I was delighted to receive an award  from Reincarnation Magazine  https://www.rcnmag.com/  for "Driver's Choice" in the Carburetion category and also the Fuel Injection cataegory.  So if you're one of the kind readers who voted for me, I'm deeply thankful for your vote and support.  THANK YOU!!  

If you're curious about Weber carburetion or thinking of putting an 8-stack EFI unit on your car, this is the website you've been looking for. Most of the answers you need are here, and if you don't see the information you need, just call me.  I’ll be the one answering the phone.  There is no receptionist, no recorded voice loop, no extension choices, and you won’t have to press a number for English. So, if you don’t speak English you’re out of luck.

I can build you an EFI unit with modern throttle bodies or one that looks just like a classic 1965 Weber carburetion setup with the injectors completely hidden inside the throttle bodies.  You’d have to be an expert to know it’s an EFI. 

This site offers the world's largest selection of V8 8-stack systems and V8 application-specific adaptive parts for Cobras, GT40's, Early Mustangs and Corvettes, hot rods, and all custom applications.

My job is to bring your vision to reality, whether it’s a strictly-business induction unit or a piece of jewelry for a world-class SEMA show car. If you can dream it, I can build it.

Some of the customized 8-stack systems take several months and not weeks, so please allow enough lead time.  No earthly force can rush my polishers and chrome platers, and mine are the best in the country so they’re  ALWAYS very busy. My advice is that if your order will require those services, please place it and get into  the queue as early as possible. There is always a wait for custom work and I cannot accelerate that process.

One thing I’ll promise you is that when you open your hood for the first time at your next car show, nobody will walk by your car yawning or l will look back down at their phone once they see what’s under your hood.   People will stop dead in their tracks to look at your engine; some won’t even know what they’re looking at but everybody will know it’s something special when they see it. 

Most likely, what you've heard about Weber carburetors has been some good and some bad. Some people say they work great...others say Weber carburetors are nothing but trouble. There's never a shortage of experts willing to provide their opinion...even if they don't know what they're talking about (which most of them don't).

On this website, I'm providing you with factual information about Weber carburetion based on 40 years of experience building and tuning Weber carburetion for V8's, many of those years on original Cobras. I guarantee that after reading the information on this website, you'll be a lot smarter when you leave.  Rule #1: Forget whatever else you've heard about Webers.

If you’re here because you’re interested in EFI, call after you have  look around the site and I’ll be happy to spend time with you on the phone.  I’ll take you through the component selection process to come up with the right package for you.  Unlike a manufacturer who only pushes their own parts, I supply custom-tailored  EFI’s using a variety of components from the multiple manufacturers.  I will be happy to share the information with you that you’ll need to make correct decisions and I'll select each component based on your engine, vehicle, and transmission.

Jim Inglese with Engine

This is me on the dyno doing what I love to do...tuning a Weber-carbureted engine. This was a very mild 383 Chevy smallblock for my ’41 Ford pickup that made a respectable 435 hp at 5700 rpm.  If you need to make 500+ horsepower, that's common.  With the right heads and the right cam, this carburetion system will easily produce 500+ hp on a stroked Ford or Chevy smallblock. Big strokers with over 400 cubic inches routinely make 550hp on the dyno.

A thumbnail sketch

Every 8-stack system that comes out of this shop is built to order, matched to the engine and vehicle it's intended for. There are no assembled 8-stack systems finished and sitting on the shelf here; a custom-built system is created from scratch for each customer. I offer more V8 applications and related accessories than any other Weber or EFI 8-stack source in the world, so if you're planning on putting an 8-stack system on a V8, you're in the right place; this is the only website of its kind; no other website provides the information you'll find here.

The questions I've heard most over the years are answered on the Common Questions page, but if you have any new ones, feel free to call or email me. If you email, you'll usually hear back from me the same day...usually within hours. I check emails several times a day and I answer everybody.  And when you call, I'm the only one who answers the phone.

I've been at this a long time. In fact, there is nobody else building V8 Weber carburetion systems today that's been doing it as long, or has built as many units as I have over the past 40 years. Other sources offer similar products that may look the same, and some are temptingly cheaper, but with Weber carburetion, you'll get exactly what you pay for. You'll pay now or pay later. The real value is in what you can't see: Experience goes a long way when one of these units is being assembled on the bench. 

As an educated buyer, here are a few things you should know:

I don’t compete with anyone on price, so please don't ask for "my best deal", because doing what I do, the way I do it, is much more labor-intensive than the way anybody else does it. It takes us a fair amount of  time to build one of these systems. A properly assembled linkage system takes a while to install and adjust, and occassionally, final testing of the linkage on the bench may even reveal a problem that requires disassembly; it happens. I won't ship anything with my label on it unless it's 100% right, and you can rely on that.

Every 8-stack unit is shipped ready for an easy startup, dry-adjusted on the bench and set to idle, so when you start the engine, it will fire immediately and idle for you. If it's a new engine, you can take it to 2000 rpm's to break in your cam; no problem. If you're buying Webers, my 13-page Weber instruction manual takes you right through the entire setup process, from gas pedal adjustment to fuel pressure to ignition timing to synchronizing the four carburetors. I leave no room for error.  My #1 goal is for every installation to be a 100% success.  The manual is not for sale.

Customer Service is of paramount importance to me, as I know it is with you.

My personal support to you continues well beyond the sale. It comes with your order and you'll have my cell phone number. When you make a purchase, you're a "member of the family". I provide unlimited free support until your carburetion system or EFI runs perfectly. Email anyone else advertising 8-stack Weber systems and ask what they provide for an instruction manual, and find out about their support policy after the sale, both on the phone and by email. Tell them you'll need somebody's cell phone number and a personal guarantee that they will respond to your emails within only a few hours, day or night. Of course, they'll laugh at you and think you're nuts. I usually check emails for the last time at 8 pm. I also answer emails on weekends, by the way...in case you have a problem, or if you just need information.

If you already bought a Weber carburetion system somewhere else and need me for help, I'll help you. I can send you whatever parts might solve the problem, but I won't know exactly what you're starting with and what you really have there, because I wasn't inside those carburetors myself. If they weren't prepped properly on the bench to start with, no amount of re-jetting is going to help. Jetting cannot compensate for incorrect preparation (Weber carburetors cannot be installed “out of the box”.  They are meant to be completely disassembled and built to suit each application). If you already have one and need to make corrections, you may have to disassemble the unit and all 4 carburetors. Or, you may end up having to ship it here, which is very common. They're shipped here all the time for complete overhauls and R&R service.

If you have to take it off the car after it's been running, packing and shipping it here will be a little bit of work, and more time and more money out of your pocket. 

So, while you may save some money up front buying an 8-stack system somewhere else, it can be a gamble. You might end up spending the difference (or more) in parts and shipping to make it streetable, not to mention the aggravation of being without the use of the car. Reworks can take several weeks to cycle through here sometimes.  So, in the end, just remember, there’s no free lunch.

If you already own a Weber 8-stack system that came from somebody else and it needs work, I'll correct it for you, but there's a catch..... First, you are required to watch this video

So why are There Two "Inglese" Companies?

There's a lot of confusion about INGLESE INDUCTION SYSTEMS vs. JIM INGLESE 8-STACK SYSTEMS, and I'm really sorry about all that. They're actually two separate companies that are in no way connected.  I know everybody wonders how this can be.

INGLESE INDUCTION SYSTEMS was my original company; I sold it a long time ago. It's now owned by Comp Cams in Tennessee, and our companies are not connected. I started INGLESE INDUCTION SYSTEMS with that name, and they own that name now. I operate my own company from only this website. The good news is you're on the right website.

Also please notice that I now use my full name, JIM INGLESE 8-STACK SYSTEMS. The units built here have the newer "signature" label, which is shown below. If this label is not on the front carburetor or throttle body, it was not built here.  The other "Inglese" label is completely different.  Mine has my signature, which is my personal guarantee to you that I have invested my absolute best into your 8-stack unit.

I felt it was necessary to address the ongoing confusion about the "two Inglese companies", so I hope this clears that up. Now, please come in and have a look around. I promise that if you're looking for useful information, you're really going to enjoy this website.

The "Signature Label" is the only correct one. It also displays the website and phone.
