SU Carburettor Parts & Tuning

BOI Performance is now catering for S.U Carburettor’s with the view of tuning on the Dyno/Rolling road.

The SU Carburettor’s we are currently tuning on the rolling road are British and Australian classic cars, fast road cars and race & rally cars.

This is as a result of the Fuels we have today; you need to re-tune you'r older engines to suit to days modern fuels.

SU carburettors were a brand of carburettor of the sidedraught constant depression type. A handful of downdraught variants were used on some pre-war cars.

SU was named for Skinners Union, the business that produced them. Skinners Union was founded in 1905 by brothers George and Thomas Skinner[2] on Euston Road, London,[citation needed])The business having been acquired in 1926 by W. R. Morris[citation needed] they were widely used in his Morris and MG products and other British (Rolls-Royce, Bentley, Rover, Riley, Austin, Jaguar, Triumph) and Swedish (Volvo, Saab 99) automobiles for much of the twentieth century. Originally designed and patented by George Herbert Skinner in 1905, they remained on production cars through to 1993 in the Mini and the Maestro by which time they had become part of the Rover Group. They are now manufactured by Burlen Fuel Systems Limited mainly for the classic car market. Hitachi also built carburettors based on the SU design which were used on the Datsun 240Z, Datsun 260Z and other Datsun Cars. While these appear the same, only their needles are interchangeable.[citation needed]
