Re: Best carb for 3931067 BBC intake
Jay,whats the cam specs when you say its a healthy cam,q-jet's dont like lrg cams which is why i am asking.
Anyway,go to Sean Murphy's SMI website to get his contact info ,Sean can setup q-jets to run very well with fairly lrg cams on the street .
So call Sean and give him cam specs/idle vacuum in gear with auto trans/intneded use of car/rear gear ratio / etc and he should be able to get you squared away with a q-jet that shuld run decent right out of the box,costs approx $350 last time i checked.
If you call Sean tell him scott from t/chevelle rec you to him.
BTW,that 067 intake is a semi high rise intake that performs reasonably well for a stock unit due to it being a semi hi rise design.
Also,make sure you use proper gastet setup or you will cook carb with too much ex crossover heat that runs thru the chanel under front of carb to heat it up in cooler weather.
Your supposed to run a std carb gasket for that ntakes that has same chanel cut out in it along with a thin metal/steel ship/heat shiled too ,its a stock applaication thst listed under felpro as requring the steet shim/heat shiled and std carb gasket with proper cutout for heat passage too. Your local parts house or napa should be able to look that up for you.
