Hey Brian, I sent a message to those guy's at APD, wanting to buy a new alky carb last week and haven't heard anything from them. Guess they don't like us Texas boy's. :lol:

Default One change at a time bj.....

Hey Juice,

I forgot to mention that, well, to really get good data on what works and what doesn't, you should do one change at a time, and by changing the intake, and converting to alcohol, you will have lost you knowledge of what did what and how much, but then again, I understand the excitment when your brain gets going and new parts arrive, been there
I am not saying yeah, or nea to the Team G, but my Team G put me into the 10's with of course some work from my cyl. head guy and he really made it work. They need to be reworked in certain areas to really come alive and many use them . I myself depend on Edelbrock as Vic spent many hours designing these intakes and I now use the Edel. Super Victor for tall decks and man let me tell ya, my 505 just never stops pullin even at 8000 rpm's, but then again, I have an awesome package of an engine this time around. Good move on your part to get the R manifold, it should drop you down a bit in et and maybe even change your power curve a little also. Please let us know how things turn out, and of course, good luck

You'll need to call them, ask for Randy, Joe or John all 3 are good guys to chat with. I dont think they reply to the email thing. The phone sometimes is even hard to get through its always busy with people calling.

A lot of companies never reply via email.
I always call after 1pm seems like the phone is always busy in the am.
Joey is good with fuel systems
Randy is the self proclaimed carb god :lol:
Johnny is the all around man

Its amazing to see all the brands of carbs in there getting redone if you think of it, its under the bench being swapped over.
