This is serious...what country do you live in where there are stock carbs on 1987 BMWs? The last carburetor thing I messed with was taking an original Zenith-Stromberg 32 off of my 1976 2002 and putting on a Weber 32/36 DGAV. Man, what a difference! That was awesome....

My guess would be to leave the computer in place. I don't see how else the mixture can be controlled.

If the Weber has no computer control inputs, I'd say the computer has no role. What kind of fuel pump does the car have?

Well, I'd think the computer might have a role regulating the pump...

I would think so, if left as is, and if that was one of its roles.
