EMPI now offers stock replacement carburetors for both single port and dual port engines. The 34 PICT-3 reproduction by EMPI is designed to
meet the original Volkswagen specifications. It looks and functions just like the unit from the factory, and is proving to be a great choice
for stock engine applications. It comes installed with a 12 volt choke and 12 volt idle solenoid (cut-off) valve. The 12v choke
can be used on 6 volt systems but will take longer to warm up. You must remove the cut off solenoid and plug the part on the side of the
carburetor housing if running a 6 volt electrical system. The carburetor comes with one base gasket for installing the new unit onto the
Our Expert's Take:
We've sold thousands of these carburetors and have had great success with them. They are very tunable and out of the box, they are pretty much spot on and ready to go. For our own stock dual port 1600cc engines, more often than not, this or our own 113129031KJB are the carburetors we run. We recommend running a stock vacuum advance or SVDA distributor to alleviate off idle hesitation.

Our carburetors are set up to run gasoline, not a blended gasoline/ethanol mix that is common in some areas. If your local fuel has 10% or more ethanol content (not, E85) or you find that the carburetor is running lean, you can swap out the standard jets for the larger option.

Make sure to troubleshoot your Carburetor before purchasing a new one.
Our Carburetors are factory bench tested, adjusted, and ready to install. They are guaranteed to work properly right out of the box, free of all manufacturing defects. If your engine is currently not running well and continues to run poorly after a new carburetor has been installed, the problem is either not the carb, or there may be additional problems hindering performance. We highly recommend you check, diagnose and exhaust every other possibility before purchasing a new carburetor, because they will not be refunded once installed. The problems are far less expensive than the cost of a new carburetor!
Check for intake leaks at the carburetor base gasket, at the intake manifold boots and end castings (for dual port manifolds), at the
cylinder head, and that the manifold itself is not cracked or pin-holed.
Make sure that the ignition timing is correct and your spark plugs, plugs wires, points, condenser, cap and rotor are in good condition.
Make sure that the valves are adjusted properly.
Check that your fuel pressure is proper. Often times new fuel pumps put out more pressure than carburetors can use.
make sure your current carburetor is adjusted properly. If you are not familiar with setting a carburetor take the car to a certified mechanic that is familiar with VWs.
