What is the best carb for this
<font color="green"> The Quadrajunk, but they are a real PITA to tune correctly. </font color>
I've run a Holley double pumper, which absolutely sucked on anything that wasn't smooth and flat, then installed an old Q-Jet which I had lying around to find that its great off road! Go fig!
How well do edlebrock 600 do with the offroading kit??
<font color="green"> I am going to incur the wrath of the CK5 quadrajunkies here... I have an Edelbrock 600cfm carb and it's been great. I have the offroad mods done to it, the needles and seats, adjusted float level and the fuel slosh fix. It works great for me all the time, even on 45 degree climbs and descents. I never really talk about it because the general concensus on CK5 is that they suck.
Flame on... </font color>
edelbrocks do good. /forums/images/graemlins/cool.gif /forums/images/graemlins/thumb.gif
One more vote for the Edelbrock 600.
It does everything I need it to do.
For the money, the Edelbrock is the way to go.
If you have the extra $300, then the new Quadrajet would be better.
Fule slosh fix? Could you explain?
<font color="green"> Here is a link that describes the procedure to remedy the fuel slosh issue. </font color>
SHAGGY IS ON EDLEBROCK'S PAY ROLE!! BOOO!!!
just kidding, but he is the only guy i personally know that actively supports the old Carter style carbs.
Hell, stupid me, i didn't even know that you could still buy a QuadraJet in the original form /forums/images/graemlins/shocked.gif
I like my Holley Double Pumper... It has always run fine.. I've seen them on 45/45 angles and idle just fine.... /forums/images/graemlins/thumb.gif
I'll add my vote for the Quadrajet. And you can get them for around $100 from Autozone rebuilt with a 1 year warranty!
