Default The absolute BEST e85 carb conversion company

We have a 572 Hemi here, world block, mild cam, 8-71, pullied for 11 lbs, turbo 400, made 950 on the engine dyno on 93. It's a show truck, we're swapping to e85, upgrading the pump, line, etc. Motor has twin 750 holley blower carbs off the shelf. We would like to have the existing carbs upgraded if possible. If not what is the absolute best option out there for driveability. What carb company would be recommended for the conversion. We're perfectly capable of tuning it, but for this particular motor we're looking for as close to a bolt on deal as possible. I'd love to bolt on and go.

Heres a few pics of the truck. The guys at autogeek spent 10 hours on it today

I had a carb built by pro systems and then I had a 1050 quick fuel that I owned and used as a gas carb for years,converted by http://www.classicmtrsprts.com/ Chris at classic motor sports is great to deal with and he nailed it first try, just a little tuning and it was good to go, the pro system's got sent back twice and countless hours tuning and on the phone with Patrick and never did get it to run right, now I just run the quick fuel from classic motor sports, traded my sv1 back to pro systems for a dominator that just sits on the shelf not being used, Awsome truck!!

Or Eric at http://www.horsepowerinnovations.com/
I tried Chris at classic motorsports and couldn't get it right. He is a great guy to deal with tho, I can't say enough about his customer service. Answers calls and emails right away. Just didn't work out for me.
Eric's carb is working pretty well and his customer service is right up there. From what I understand you can't go wrong with Mark either.

x2 I would doubt many have a better running carb then I had. Street driven 200-300 miles a week, driven to and from the track and would put the car on the back bumper off idle, mashing the throttle. Never missed a beat! I have it for sale but don't have two of them. lol
