Loved them then, even had a three barrel on a GTO, not now. Oh yea, page 19 of October's Hot Rod magazine has a picture of my car!
They're dirt simple and they work well. The AVS is even better than the AFB but they're both great for engines that aren't too radical (I have one on a 2.3l with a 244 cam and it was a bit of a PITA to get it tuned right off idle)..
