fuel pressure

I have a two barrel weber carb on my 914 2.0 with a choke and it is missing sometimes. What is the fuel pressure for this carb. I am running a electric fuel pump

It wants pretty low pressure, on the order of 3 PSI I believe. Make sure you're using a pump that delivers low pressure; the stock pump pushes way too much pressure and too much volume to be easily regulated down to that low.

Make sure the ignition is in good condition; often "carb problems" are actually ignition problems--or even compression or valve adjustment problems.

BTW, the single-carb setup is pretty much the worst possible way to get fuel into the engine. THe long unheated manifolds lead to fuel drop-out, manifold wetting, and often to uneven mixture distribution. If you must run carbs, run duals.

Similar to the single, 3 PSI for most.
