    I just got a Edelbrock 1406 to install in my 86K5. It will be installed on top of an Edelbrock 3701 Performer Intake. I have a 700r4 tranny.

    According to Lokar I need the following hardware to make this carb work with my setup...
    Throttle Cable - TC1000HT
    Kick Down Cable - KD2700HT
    Bracket - SRK4000
    EGR Adapter - EDL1476

    These all appear to be stainless steel cables and brackets and I don't want to spend $100+ dollars for all of this if I don't need it.

    Can I get away with using all of the stock cables and simply purchasing this TCI corrector kit instead (TCI-376710)?

    if you plan on doing anything other than pavement driving, do yourself a favor and dont bother putting the Edelcrock on it.

    I agree I put a 1406 on my 86 and It sucked off road I even put the off road needle and seat in it. The only reason I bought It was because I got it for cheap and my quadrajet was too worn out to rebuild, Next carb I buy is going to be the truck avenger.

    Ditto on on running the inexpensive edelbrock, although I am not to sure about the truck avenger (my happiest day as a former holley owner was throwing it the trash :haha: ). My vote and $$ went to the new not reman. qjet from edelbrock :bow: . Its worth the extra $$ for efficiency and driveability both on and especially off road. :wink1:
