Place your vote

Just wanted to take a vote to see which carburetor is the preference for HARD CORE off-roaders.
I'm in the market for a new 4 barrel carb, and thought I would get some real life info from the field. I'm looking for something that will take some good bumps and work at extreme angles. (Also user friendly)
To bad I don't have any ideal how to put those cool voting boxs onto my post so you could just click on the carb of your choice, oh well.
Here are my choices, but feel free to add to them:

1. Holley
2. Edelbrock
3. Rochester
4. Thermo-Quad
5. Carter Q-jet
6. Motercraft
7. Other (?)

Happy Holidays

Fuel injection if first choice, second is a Q-jet.

Re: Place your vote


I think the Q-jet won, should have one coming in the mail as I speek. Injection would be nice but $$$$$ limits makes that a no-go.

Have a Happy Holiday.
