Post predator carburetors?

Looking through the Jegs catalog i saw one of these. Anybody know anything about predator carburetors? They seem pretty simple, like a block. Are they worth the money?

I love predators, because they meter exactly the amount of fuel the engine demands. but if I wasn`t building a all out race engine or super torque monster for a big truck then i wouldn`t run one.

Cool

They are good carbs. Nice throttle response. Hood clearance problems and intimidating looks scare most folks away.

would these work good for a street/strip engine? given I have adequate hood clearance.

Predatorcarb.com AAaaahhh... the predator carb, just imagine a big open steel block with a fuel line running through it, much better than any carb I have ever seen.
