Re: Buying carb

Call up Sean Murphy Inductions, http://www.smicarburetor.com/
Sean will custom build you a STAGE 2 Quadrajet specific to your engine/exhaust/intake/driving habit. Cost is only $350!!!
I have an SMI carb on my 69 Camaro and one on my 63 Nova, I would never look anywhere else, these carbs are amazing and perform flawlessly

Sean use to be a head guru at JET PERFORMANCE in Huntington Beach, he broke off I think 5 or so years back and started his own custom carb building business down the street.

Be sure to call up Sean and talk to him on the phone, he'll get you all dialed in for a carb that will work flawless for your exact engine. I recommend the Stage 2, thats what I have used from the get go. I am sure you can figure it out above or Sean can give you the details on that. Also let him know you were referred by some at Team Camaro, he has a big following at Team Chevelle (Tons of guys over there have used his carbs) and the more he hears about Team Camaro/Chevelle the more likely he is to sponsor this site someday.

Re: Buying carb

Thats a pretty subjective topic, I run the 65003 Hedman Headers, they are a full length header and fit pretty good with the Power Steering and KickOut Pan, they are designed for the first generation camaro. I believe its 66003 for the Ceramic Coated ones. Be aware that changing headers will usually result in needing to reweld where the exhaust bolts to the headers, they don't all connect up at the exact same point, some shorties will dump close to the block, some like the Hedman 65003 are much longer and dump out near the torque converter.
