I'd like to suggest you get a couple of carb books, read them and experiment on a few carbs and you'll see why nobody buys the Predator carb. After several years of building engines, carbs, etc and dynoing engines weekly I now recommend hot rodders buy what works and 99% use Holley carbs on their performance vehicles.
BTW, you and that 90% are wrong! Sure, let's buy a Holley, spend a bunch of time on extra parts, and put a bunch of time into tuning it. For what?... Some piece of crap that still will never work as good as a Predator you can just pull out of the box and bolt on. Don't make absurd comments about something you know nothing about! Get your facts straight before you comment.
I want to go racing. To do that, I want to do it as cheaply, easily, and consistantly as possible...given the same results. That being said, The Predator is the reason I'll never own another Holley POS.
