I saw this site:
http://www.rockauto.com/catalog/x,ca...,parttype,5904

It seems rather cheap (little bit important: shipping and tax to the netherlands is nearly $ 90,- )
I don't have a racecar so the same carb is ok.
Does anyone know this site and are they ok? Or can i better buy a holley or edelbrock on the summit site?
Ik hope you have some answers for me.

thanks

To answer your original question yes RockAuto is a good outfit to buy from.I bought a radiator from them and have had no problems with it. about 100$ cheaper even with shipping. I often use there site to look up parts myself so I have the part number before going to the local part store. If you decide to buy from summit I would go for the edelbrock (carter style). To me they are easier to adjust,you can change the metering rods with it on the car and it will get better mileage than the Holley. The Holley is a good carb just more suited to performance and more difficult to tune. Good luck Brian
