Predator Carb Help

I have a big block Chevy Predator Carb and no part number. Only patent number; 4283355. Anyone know if I can use it on a 350 GM? Will that work or can it be re-jetted down? Thanks for the feedback

Because this is MORE of a ENGINE question than General Rodding .. ... As a moderator I am moving this thread to the ENGINE area where hopefully you will receive more views and get answers from members who are more " engine orientated ... "

The only good use for these carbs is as a anchor.
Tie it to a rope and if say your brakes on your car suddenly fail as you go screaming down a hill, pitch the carb on a rope out the window.
Maybe it will snag on something and save your ***.

F-BIRD'88, You are so full of feces that it's running out of your ears.With only three settings, there is no carburater that is easier to tune than a Preditor. They work on big engines, or small engines. You can probably get better performance from a Holley or Q-Jet, but they take more finesse to get there.

Hey these carbs are awesome! I just put one on my carbed 6.0 LS motor. Absolutely instant throttle response! The best responding carb i have ever used. I had a holley HP before this.
