[TR] H6 vs HS6

I have two running TR3s – one with H6 and the other with HS6s. The car with the HS6s (and the TR4 manifold) is much quicker, but then it has additional modifications. I was told that, all things being equal, you will get more bang from your buck with the HS6 carbs.

Bill, the H6 carbs on a stock intake manifold have the same length as the HS6 carbs on the longer TR4 intake manifold. I wish I had known this before I converted my TR3A to the longer intake and HS6's The thought at the time was that using the longer intake allows more mixing of the air/gas and then more even burning so more power. I have measured both set ups and they are the same. You don't have enough room in the inner fender to mount the longer H6 carbs to the TR4 intake. I think that the shorter carbs on the shorter manifold would give less power for the above stated reason. But how you spirited you drive might make a difference, too. You do have to rework the choke, which is a pain. I'd go with the original set up ( and did on the latest acquisition).

Starting to revive a 1960 TR3A motor that has be on the shelf for a number of years and have arrived at the SU carburettors. I find I have complete pairs of H6 and HS6 units that I could use so I would like to pose the question: Which would be preferred using the original TR3A/H6 intake manifold?
I heard noise in the past that the shorter carbs on the TR3 manifold would hamper performance. Any truth to that?
