Don't worry about it. It is something like: Sucks Under all kinds of conditions or Supreme Underacheiver or Stuck Under my car every weekend or something...I don't know either. Whatever it is, seems to cause alot of stress though...

Basically it's the name of the carburators used in the early Zs. They were used in pairs. Made by Hitatchi in Japan against an English patent (I think).

They are unlike Detroit style carbs like Carter, Rochester, Holly, etc.

SU's only cause trouble for the un-edumacated and uninitiated. SU's are extremely simple and reliable (unlike FI!).
