    TWIN FOURS OR BUGCATHER HAT ON A RAM

    Just want your guys opinion.I have a 632 N/A motor with ported BB3 Xtra Brodix heads,15.5C/R. Whats better? Twin Dominators on a ram or direct injection Bugcatcher hat on a ram? Ive heard mixed opinions and i want to settle it.

    Bug catcher is to small for a 632 ci.

    I have a bird on mine and I love it. Less things to go wrong and easier to tune than carbs.

    On my Altered I run a Bird Catcher on my 434ci. sbc and it runs great! I would never go with gas because it runs so good,the trottle responce is perfect and you gain about 8 or 9% more power just by running it :wink: Ya there are some draw backs like changing the oil more often and having to drain the system at the end of the race weekend,and I've heard some guys have a hard time starting their cars but I run a primer on mine and I have no issues.
    If a 5 lb hammer can't fix it,it must be electrical

    Bird Catchers have 3 bolts in each butterfly,Bugs have 2

    Bug catcher butterfly plate have 2 bolt holes and are 3.681" dia.
    Bird catcher butterfly plate have 3 bolt holes and are 4.367" dia.

    Bug catcher brass throttle stop shafts are .312"
    Bird catcher brass throttle stop shafts are .437"

    I'm sure this is correct and that Enderle parts are the same. Check to make sure though. Hope this helps!
