    I believe the above (first pic, "Second Design") has an error in the order the parts are assembled and should be as below:

    Found this interesting video posted on a Lamborghini forum just now, it's a theoretical overview for the K-Jet system and should be mandatory viewing for anyone who decides to keep it on their car The video quality is a little wonky (obviously recorded from a VHS with some tracking issues) but the audio is good and the video glitches don't really detract.

    I also just learned that K-Jet was used on the Countach.

    (Just have to remember the plate works backwards because of the pivot location....)

    This one was in the same group.

    The Ferrari 308s also had K-jet and from the few owner's I've spoken to (and the postings on their forums), it hasn't really been a problem for them. They do have more steel and fewer flexible hoses than our stock setup, but I don't know if that would have any impact or not.

    the b27f & b28f with k-jet were used in the volvo 260 series, and k-jet was used on the 4cylinder volvo motors for many years. a great source of info for k-jet stuff is: k-jet.org

    I know a couple Ferraris here locally that use K-Jet systems have been pretty good as long as the cars are driven (which can be said for any car!). They also use non-ethanol gas, but premium works good as well



    I know one 308 that doesn't have K-Jet, but it's an earlier production model with Webber Carbs

    The other 2 Ferraris are a 1985 308 QV and 1980 400i V-12. I have been helping the owner of the 400i some.



    K-Jet is not that bad of a system. May not be perfect, but not horrible!
