Summit Carb

Has anyone used the Summit Carb? I will be buying a 750 VA for a 468 mild engine, 400HP. What suggestions?

Re: Summit Carb

Yes, I have bought one and you have to rebuild it out of the box....so waste of time and money.

You need to buy a AED that is already rebuilt and tested. I have a video of my AED Holley 750 double pump.

Re: Summit Carb

So I guess I should just go with a holley 750 or the 770 Avenger. Any other thoughts or suggestions.

Re: Summit Carb

Hi Bruce, the Avengers are a complete scam, they are worse, do a google search and see the complaints for just about every avenger carb.

Re: Summit Carb

For a street driven big block, I would consider running a properly set up Quadrajet.

The important thing here is that you ask me what kind of car I've got. "I've got a BITCHIN' CAMARO"

Re: Summit Carb

I am surprised about the Holley Avenger, I will have to research it. I have a 770 Holley Avenger on my other 468 69 Camaro and have had no issues in 4 years, better than my third 69 with the old 750 VA carb. . . .all very interesting! My 96 C10 427 runs great with the with a 800 DP speed deamon for 10 years!

Re: Summit Carb

My issue is I am running a 850 DP Holley on a mild 468 and it is too much carb and runs terrible. I switched with another 468 and a 750 VA Holley and it runs fine, so I will pedal the 850 and get a 750 something! Thanks for the input. My 96 was a typo, a 69 C10 427 with a Speed Demon 800 DP and has been trouble free for 10 years.
