I love what some of these guys are doing with the inline six, no doubt that power can be made. As with most of these engine they are very exotic, the key is getting it to breathe. Most use a highly modified or a hybrid aftermarket head and some turbo or blower configuration... Growing up my Father had a friend that ran a 300 inch Ford on alcohol in an altered Anglia, very competitive... I just did't think that a street driven 50' PU owned by a 20 year old needed all that.

Carburetion specialist
"Modern" technology is, and always has been, temporary. Today's technology will be obsolete by 2030 when, due to PC, gasoline will be banned.

Those who can still afford the real estate to park one will have an electric vehicle.

Anyone wish to buy a carburetor shop? wink

Good carburetion is fuelish hot air
The most expensive carburetor is the wrong one you attempt to modify

Not to worry Jon. There will be plenty of rebels thwarting change. As the current vehicles with all of the wires, computers and sensors become obsolete and parts become hard/impossible to find, guys like us will revert back to simpler designs and keep on keepin' on.
We don't need no stinkin' gas to run our stuff. We can make alcohol. The drivin' and drinkin' kind.

I have seen a lot of LS motors with intake and carbs swapped , seems to make real power you need to go old.

Ironically the trend is to make LS motors look old.

I'm running a 12 port cross flow head and a 4-71 blower. I will be limiting myself to 750 HP because I have been told at 800 HP on a stock mains the crankshaft leaves the building.

Pretty sure LS motors would be ridiculed off the HAMB.

Im 35. Ive been on both sides of the fence working with distributors and carbs on everything sbc/bbc’s included and 80’s computer tech (or lack there of) on chrysler turbo cars. I use a turbo LS platform in my race/drift car and honestly it was totally foreign to me the first time doing it but i can honestly say its the easiest most modular setup there is. If you can trust a normal 2000’s silverado to drive around anywhere (as most owners do. My dad included) then you can trust whatever you put that engine in will do the same. I understand its not for everyone but ive converted a few gentlemen in their late 60’s and they said they wont go back to a carb or distributor unless it was desperate times. The 4.8/5.3/6.0/6.2 based engines are just great. They need very little wiring to run and they never really leak oil or give problems. Im sure some will but they are a known well performing and dependable setup. Ive taken apart probably 20 and ive never replaced any bearings or even a oil pan gasket. Usually lifters and a cam kit and then add some boost and smack that thing between the frame rails of anything and enjoy 600/700/800hp on pump gas and drive it to get groceries. My 49 gmc has a bone stock 2001 5.3 litre with 140k on it and its a no nonsense turn key and run the same everyday setup. I would drive it across country tomorrow without ever even worrying about anything going wrong under the hood.....and if something did happen to act up literally any parts store will have alt/starter/pumps or whatever to fix it. My main thing i tell the older generation is why not try something different? Are you afraid you might like it? Most are set in their ways but some try it and love it and agree it was a great idea. Sorry for the rambletron but thats just my 2 cents on that.

I got rid of the distributor on my blown 292 but I'm keeping my 3 Roch 2 bbl carbs. They make better power anyway. IMHO. Plus chicks dig it.
