    I have no info on them, but be carefull of who you buy carbs from. Buy from a name company, BLP, Quick Fuel, Barry Grant.... You will not save anything buying cheap in this area.

    I have a gas ProSystems and it was a bolt on and race deal. One of the best carb guys out their. We ordered one in for one of our customers that runs Wissota Late Model. That was an alcohol carb and same deal bolt on adjust float level and race. He sends along a wet flow sheet and complete specs on it along with a lean and rich specs for your adjustment knowledge. Talk to Patrick he will set you up, you won't be disappointed. Plus he is alot cheaper than some of the others out their. Note that for the last 2 years both winning engines at the Engine Builders Challenge had ProSystems carbs.

    Pro system shouldnt even be put in the same class and quick fuel and barry grant IMO them 2 carb shops are junk

    Pro system builds a good GAS carb

    I have had both of those carbs and still have one of them and they were the best carbs I have ever had for gas.........Maybe there was a problem with one of them that you could not get right :shock:

    I have had good luck with Quick fuel gas carbs and always were good enough to spend time with me on the phone to try to help with a problem..

    I didnt have terrible luck with barry grant or quick fuel but putting a pro systems or apd carb on is worth a lot of et/hp in most cases.

    look into AED carbs I see alot of them on alcohol cars in the pits.
    thats the reason why I bought an AED carb for my car.
    No one had anything bad to say about them.
