WEBER DCOE Carburettors
Transform how your car drives
The basic design for twin barrel, two-stage carburettors was pioneered and produced by Edoado Weber in the 1930s by Fabbrica Italiana Carburatori Weber in Bologna, Italy.
DCOE is an abbreviation for ‘Doppio Corpo Orizzontale E’ which means ‘double body horizontal’ .
The ‘E’ is believed to stand for ‘Type E’
They have been produced in these following sizes:
WEBER DCOE 38
WEBER DCOE 40
WEBER DCOE 42
WEBER DCOE 45
WEBER DCOE 48
WEBER DCOE 50

The WEBER DCOE was designed, developed and introduced in the late 1950s/early ’60s and was fitted to Aston Martins, Alfa Romeo, Ferrari, Ford, Maserati, Lancia, Lotus, Lamborghini, Triumph, Abarth and more..
It was produced in large numbers in Bologna, Italy unti 1992 when the production moved to Madrid in Spain, where it is still being produced today.
WEBER DCOE Carburettors were factory fitted to brand new cars as original fitment or could be purchased aftermarket and fitted to an engine using an aftermarket manifold adaptor.
WEBER DCOE Carburettors are used as singles, twins & triples and in some cases in sextaples (x6 for v12 engines)
The ability to offer up an individual barrel per cylinder and tune it specifically to the requirement of that given cylinder is key to the performance of the engine and a characteristic of the DCOE that is so invaluable.
Changes to chokes, jets, and veturis can be made on the road side. This makes the DCOE very practical as well as incredibly versatile.
They are beautifully designed yet simple, reliable, infinately tunable and adaptable.
They look great, sound great and they’re a great investment as they hardly loose their value.
Today they are fitted as aftermarket or performance enhancers to classic Jaguars, Vw Golfs, Mk1/Mk2 Ford Escorts, Alfa Romeos, Vw Jettas, Aston Martins, Fiat twincams, Lotus Twincam, Cosworths, Ford Fiestas, Minis, MGs and many more..
A balance & throtle lever can be used to connect carburettors side by side for 2cyl, 4cyl, 6cyl etc..
Generally a manifold is required to adapt DCOE’s to any given engine.
A fuel Pump is essential. This can be a mechanical or electric type.
Trumpets should be fitted and the longest ones that can be fitted, the better the airflow will be.
Air filters are essential – Many different types are available.
A suitable throttle linkage is required.
A fuel pressure regulator might be required
