No. It is not. CIS is Pulse generated. Hilborne is metered by metering jets much like a throttle position switch. the pump is no different then a power steering pump, making reliable PSI versus a block mounted mechanical pump using an eccentric or push rod.
I will say I have very little idea how the hilborn stuff works, and I doubt I will ever run it. But it is cool oldschool race parts that I saved from going in the trash
was going to take some video of the car today but the rigged throttle cable is preventing me from doing so

So its time to make a new throttle cable, since my bicycle brake cable finally died.
I am using a honda hood release cable, as it has the right size barrel end for the cbr900 carbs
It has a barrel on one end and a ball on the other, i cut the ball off
next I cut the J hook off the stock cable, and drilled out the cable that was left crimped inside it
Here is what ends I will have once I determine my length
hopefully tomorrow I will cut it to the right length and crimp and solder the j hook on and have a nice new throttle cable with no cable clamps anywhere
Also, now that I have my wideband hooked up I was wondering what A/f's i should be shooting for? Im in the 14's right now, but from what ive been reading the optimum a/f is in the high 12's to low 13's range.
Guess it is time to play with needle jet settings
Over the past week
which managed to leak nearly all of my 2 day old mobil 1 all over the engine bay. which got all over the car. So a trip to the car wash was necessary once the leaking stopped.
Decided to take a short exhaust sound video. Exhaust is a Eurosport cat delete header, to 2.25" TT exhaust with a borla muffler and 1 resonator.
I also played with the needle heights, I took plenty of pictures on how to adjust them. I went two notches from stock, and while this made my WOT A/fs a bit better (now in the high 13:1 range), it has made my crusing AF's to be a bit rich and some misfiring if I try to accelerate in 5th gear at low speeds. Going to set it back to stock and redrill my mains to a 1.78mm and go from there with the needle tuning. I will take pics of the whole process and post a DIY of sorts

I took the car to bugout 69 and did some bracket racing, ran 8 times with a best of 10.02 in the 1/8th mile, clutch slipping the whole time. Still not fast enough, but I had a sparkplug fail on the way home. I dont know if it was broke while racing, but it became problematic on the ride home. The ceramic separated from the steel threads. Swapped an old plug back in, hopefully it will make it to work tomorrow. First time driving it in 24 days.
As for bike carb content, I have picked up 2 bikes since then A yamaha SECA 1 and a yamaha SECA 2
Already rejetted the SECAII, it had stage 3 mains and the only mod was a ****ty custom "exhaust", put some stage 1 mains in and it runs soooo much better.
What's up wes - long time! Looks like the new project is going well...I'm currently using an 85 4dr as my daily (8v, carb/straight pipe/coils), have been without a german car for awhile.
Let me know if you're ever near north beach with that thing, would love to see it!
Yea man after a few years away rob & I picked up an 85 golf for autocross duty, but I'm dailying her for now...there's a cruise-in here in north beach every Friday but too many american cars - we should invade one weekend, would love to see your 16v in person.

Wes, the north beach farmers mks closes down a couple blocks by the boardwalk and there's a cruise in for it - 40-50 cars, most american, some cool. Rob and his wife just bought a houseup the street too, he's driving a 91 m5 and a 93 s4 these days
Photos of the beast are below
I'm wondering what my mk1 in-tank pump is putting out... If there is one! It was formerly a CiS 8v
How is the VW doing? I've been tinkering around with my rabbit lately and wanna get it on the road. Need to buy:
1. fuel pump
3. fuel pressure gauge
any thoughts? I don't think I have an in-tank pump but I may be wrong. I guess I'll have to look at that before I go buying anything
As for my gti, it has been parked in the woods next to my house for a couple months. Actually goign to try and start it up and park it back by the garage and start getting it ready for spring
i am using a mallory fpr and gage that a buddy of mine gave my, havent got the thing running yet so im not sure how its gona work exactly, but i recently got the motor completely done and ready to go into the rabbit. I am not putting the yosh pipe on it fyi, just thought it would be a funny pic
