    A quick fuel 750 is about 500 bucks. A proform 750HP is around the same. Both good carbs

    Pro-systems is my vote! I did a boat load of research including an engine builder / mechanical engineer and ended up buying 3 different carbs and still had problems. I bought a Prosystems carb and never had another problem.

    Pro systems and Proform. I think the Proform 750 DP is 599 though. [​IMG] I run the Proform on my 383. I has four corner idle and screw in air bleeds and emulsion bleeds just in case I wanna really screw things up.

    If you would consider swapping to E85 I could hook you up with a 4779 (750cfm) for right about $500. You'd go faster on E85 and save some gas money to boot.
