That old wives tale comes from people who can't build and tune carbs.



thats just silly.. if that had any truth to it, all the carb based engines at engine masters would have the biggest honk'n dominator on top..

sorry signal strenth goes out the window.. if you want only peak hp..
then I'd guess it might be right..
some like having a powerplant that doesn't cough and fart untill 2500rpm+
and those pro's at engine masters the cost of a dominator is peanuts..

The signal strength is more than adequate if you know what you're doing- again most people just don't know what they're doing.

As for Engine Masters- the carbs are restricted by the rules.

That would actually lose holley a ton of money... And that's where professional carb shops come into play, fixing holley's short comings.
