    I would suggest getting a good Quadrajet if you go with carb. Most everyone here swears by them, as long as their in good shape. They'll run on pretty extreme angles, good on bumps, and can be pretty powerful if tuned right.

    The best option would be FI if you can afford it. The most common is probably TBI which is fairly easy to retrofit. Another option is to use a TPI setup off a 85-92(?) Camaro or Vette. This is a good system and will be the one I'm gonna convert to next summer.

    Do a search and you will find lots of info.

    I have an Edelbrock 1902 Q-jet. Works great at all angles. I have a friend who's going to order the new Holley Truck Avenger carb soon.
