Default carb spacers

:? I have a 454 .030 over running 11.7:1 compression .660 /.666 solid roller comp cam , pro 1 345 heads , victor jr. 454r intake, 850 carb reworked by pro systems with a 1" open spacer . The torque is low do to the big heads but I want to keep them and upgrade to a 540 someday but need to make them work on my 454 for now. Should I not run a spacer or run a 4 hole spacer like a wilson taper spacer and are they worth the money. Thanks.

www.highvelocityheads.com Call these guy's and I think they will be able to help you out with a super sucker spacer.

Give Patrick at Pro Systems a call and he can tell you what will work with your combo. I made the mistake and bought a spacer and then was told my carb/combo the spacer would not work, the dyno showed me he was right. Patrick is a big help, and can save you some $$ and headaches

i personally run the 2 inch aluminum HVH supersucker and i am totally satisfied....
1967 Camaro all steel Pro-street car,tagged titled,insured, 3004 lbs with driver..all on motor with HVH supersucker.and team "g" intake.."naturally aspirated"...smaller big block 511 ci.

5.99 et @ 114 mph......with a 1.32 60 ft......can do this consistanly on gas
( so something is working)...lol

i now have a port matched 454 r intake along with the HVH supersucker
also have a brand new APD 1150 Alcohol carb......so i am very excited to see where my #'s fall the next time out......


so YES YES YES ON THE HVH SUPERSUCKER.

what don't you start a survey on what spacers evryone is usuing and if they have any dyno sheets........also like if it is a 1 inch spacer 1 1/2 or 2 inch spacer, open hole, four hole,tapered,,......small block or big block ets.

As i think spacers r flooding the market and lots are copy cats and lots are junk........so if we can save a guy a headache from buying a bunch of junk why not.............just a thought

i agree ,..GREAT IDEA..go ahead and start the survey..i will participate.
i am sold on supersucker,this is what i run and well pleased..
i personally think they are all copying one another..hard to say who was the orginal designer of this type spacer...????????..if you look at the super sucker closely bottom and top side and flip over to APD web site..they look almost identical on the swirl bottom side...except the color etc...
i think HVH supersucker has some dyno #'s to go with their product..i am almost sure of it but will not swear to it..

I have a CNC ported intake from Reher Morrison with their 1" spacer and 1/2" reversion plate. My 1050 liked it 1 hp more than the 1250 did, but when I took off the 1/2 reversion plate and put a 1" super sucker on top of the 1" spcacer, the 1250 picked up 8 more hp.

on my Big Duke motor it took 3 yes 3 open spacers. I testedalmost every spacer combo including the supersucker and it supersucked... Every engine WILL be differant.
