I've got an Edelbrock 4 bbl on a stock Caddy intake, and it works fine for me. Previously I had a Quadrajet on a factory intake, and it performed extremely well also. 74 NGH.

You could throw a match in your boat and help the rest of us out Mr. Hogeland.

Gotta agree . . .

Doesn't read as though he's re-defined " just out riding with some friends " does it ?

No we weren't "real cool" when it happened and sorry but there wasn't any apology. You all were drunk (were even bragging about it actually), hit my boat and turned around and waved at me and then proceeded to blow myself, my boat, and my rudder aswell as the other 4 boats that were parked next to me. You can ask anyone that was there in our group that we rode with for the rest of the day just how "cool" i was.

I had a 750 dp holley on mine , at first had a dead spot from idle to about 1200 when i'd punch it ,but put a 50cc pump in it and it solved the problem . it ran great for about eight years , not sayin thats the best set up , but worked good for me?
