GM performance intake and carb setup?

Hey guys, kicking around ideas lately! Does anyone have experience with a dual plane or single plan intake setup on a ls3? Carb setups seem to really shin on the top end, and I love the old school look of the motor! This is what I want under a copo cowl hood!!! What is need to complete this type of swap, and apox cost? Thanks

I have no answers to your questions. But that coupled with a nice cowl hood would be awesome.

Right!!! Also need to know about IL smog test, all they do is plug into the computer. They don't do sniffer or visual here so pretty easy.

Also... No one steel my idea here, I will have to kill you! Lol

This is better bud, then send it off to Ed Curtis of Flowtech to work his magic. Then just sell your intake and injectors.

And for your timing needs

I'd have to search what size carburetor bud. That would be your expertise lol BUT I do love the way a quadrajet sounds lol. As I kid I loved quadrajets lol.

You could also run an intake like that with a different style throttle body, and run program the computer to run in speed density (no MAF).

For example, Tom from Speed inc's retro-styled engine in his '71 TransAm:

Yes I was looking at the victor also! Very nice... I would run a 850 HP style carb, but the throttle body on that T/A is not bad! That motor looks sick, that's my plan once I get done paying it off! Imagine the bling factor poping the hood, never expected!

Q jets are great carbs when setup right! I used to race with a guy that ran 10s with a q jet!

Another thing, what about the fuel pump? With a high pressure efi fuel pump and pressure? Can the stock regulater be set for 8-9 psi, what options do I have for this?

You will need to.run larger fuel.line and convert your fuel sending unit.to.just a pickup. I personally would run a single billet (aeromotive, magnafuel,etc) pump to a return style regulator and plumb the car with a new feed and return line. 10an feed and 8an return will give.you some.room to.grow. Please excuse all of.the.misplaced periods. Im using a new phone and I'm not.sure what's going on. While you are at it put a carb cam in it. The tighter lsa and.bigger duration will add a bunch.to your combo.

Like catch me said, look at the pic you posted. You'll need a regulator like that. And yes I also agree on a cam with at least a 110 LSA or 108!

Why go back to the stone age with a carb? I'd understand if this was a classic car but in a '10+? Makes no sense to me.

Thanks, that the info I need! Yes I would also end up going with a larger cam on a 110 lsa, the cam I have now might work for a little wile.

As far as why, carbs have come a long way for one, I have old school blood and I think this setup would be insain to see in a 10 camaro! Not only look sick as hell, will run like a raped ape too! How awesome would that engine setup, big cowl, and drag wheel tire setup be! The baddest mofo ever, that's what! Lol

Ok it definitely would be different I'll give ya that, but for more horsepower just simply isn't true. They claim the carb manifold is a bolt on 25hp over stock injection but you need to read the fine print. The stock tune is safe and lazy compared to how the carb would be set up as well as the agressive msd box timing curve. Not to mention the numbers they claim are with headers. So add a set of headers and an agressive tune on the factory injection and you'll definitely have more than 25hp.

I agree about not going with the carb, but one cannot say that a carb manifold is only X number of hp over stock. I dont think you'll be able to find a single dyno test that shows the stock manifold outperformed the carb style manifold.

I, personally, would not recommend going to a carb. The headaches you would go through to make it work would not be worth it. If you're going for nostalgia, I recommend getting rid of the car and purchasing a Gen 1. If you just want the look and possibly the added performance, I would follow litle88's advice. I'm sure you could purchase that Edelbrock manifold and the rest of the stuff from F.A.S.T. so that way you can keep your multi-port injection and reap the benefits of the looks and performance of the other style manifold.

I can say for certain it will not be cheap. With that said, I would consider something more unique if I was going to invest in a new induction.

It's been proven many times that a carb setup has the ability to make more power, if I go this route the car will be a toy and not a daily like now. Carbs are simple to work on and tune, with the right parts and a good carb this setup can be very reliable! Why would I buy an old car just to put the engine and trans in that car when I already have it!!! Also the money it would cost will really not be all that bad, probably under 2k to do this work and I would also get money back selling my ls3 efi! I seem some dyno test were this type of setup made ALLOT more too end power and torque!

Totally agree, I do have to say though if you are going for some high horsepower strip car Q-jet not that great, but I run a Q-Jet on my 406 solid roller engine in my S10 on the street as they have great manors around town. I do switch to a older Barry Grant King Demon when I run at strip though.

Yep a BG is a nice carb, HP style with a nasty cam! This little 376 will scream, best thing about this idea... I would still have all the comfort of a 5th gen, but with a Nasty old school attitude!
