    Does anyone have any expirience with predator carbs? I'm thinking of getting one for my 350. Do they come in 750cfm?

    Those are VARIABLE carbs. Meaning they self-adjust to the air/fuel ratio. I think they are variable up to 900-something CFM.

    I ran dual predators many years ago in a drag racing truck on a pretty sweet tunnel ram. They were rated at 900 cfm. That was probably 12-15 years ago and I think that was the only rating they came in at that time. Great carbs but I think it would be a bit overkill for a K5. This truck I had it on put out about 550-600 HP with the dual carbs and a nice little nitrous system. Oh yeah, it also got 4 MPG. Not a good street machine!
