Pros -Daylight and dark difference in my OEM Carter!
-Easy to tune
-Superior idle
Cons -Gaskets weren't exact
-Instructions were hard to follow and there were drawings and not actual photos
-Had to make bracket for throttle return spring
Recommended yes

Comments: Ordered kit from Carbs Unlimited, payed the extra shipping and received my new carb in three days. Installed in about 1 1/2 hours, tuned in about 10 min. Had a little trouble with the gaskets matching but contacted Redline tech support and was told how to correct issue. Still have to ensure vaccum lines are in all the right places, but so far so good!:cheers2:

Comments: Works great i have mine set up for wheeling so i lost some top end, but my jeep isn't built for speed its built for wheeling.

Recommended yes

Comments: If you live in area you can eliminate emissions, this carb and a HEI distributor allows you to remove almost all the vacuum crap and computer under the hood! Engine runs smoother, stronger and better MPG's.
