Carb Tuning in Melbourne - Automotive

Post by Malcolmbolen23 » Sun Oct 27, 2019 9:28 pm

Have 8 hours on a new SBC build and looking to work out a few kinks. Any recommendations on best carb tuners for automotive set-ups in Melbourne area?

Thanks in advance

If a motor has never had a carb tuned specifically for that motor you are leaving a whole lot on the table. Never heard anyone say otherwise. But prob gets the least attention to detail.

Thank you all - specifically had a few issues with dieseling, and gonna go to Dave at Water Thunder first before heading south. Anyone use an idle solenoid on their carbs for this issue?
