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.

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

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.
