I do my own, similar to the ones advertised. If they have the quality, go for it, it does work. Let us know if you get one, it mite save me some time on the next set I do. Try to get annular boosters with it, if you can.

I bought a carb with annular super boosters in it.
Then after I cleaned,bored,blended it, I sent it back to Holly to have it redichromated and double checked for flow. They replaced with Ford truck annular boosters for the application. The ones in the catalog with downleg boosters are better than the regular ones for better signal strength/atomization. Its worth the money for the extra hp.

Hey 6-71 if you hurry we can both be test pilots, I just ordered one yesterday, it's going on a fairly well built 350 4-bolt, the carb I'm going with is 650 double pumper list 4777,I called Proforms tech center on Thursday and they sold me on giving it a shot. I also ordered some Holley jet extentions and a notched float for the rear bowl, I,m sure I'll have to play with jetting and possibly the power valve, anyway, I'll know more in a couple of weeks than I know now. The carb is on the car now and it runs pretty good, so when I get it dialed in, I'll post it, win, lose, or draw!!!
