I used to drive mine on the street all the time(sold the car). They are very streetable. See track numbers in sig. Ran 8.80's on 93 octane.

With enough tinkering they can run just as well as efi. I've been in bt turbo cars you'd swear are fuel injected if you didn't open the hood.

I have wondered this as well as I am an old school gen 1 guy. I was thinking down the road going turbo but everyone says you should go to EFI as it is more forgiving. I have a friend that has a BBC with twins and is blow through and he has no problems. Runs mid 8's all day on e85.

Mine runs very well .

I'm switching to EFI and its actually kinda hard because of this , but there is just so much EFI can do .

If your starting from scratch EFI is the way to go .

I've never seen a post on here of someone going the other way and switching to a carb from EFI if that tells you anything. I was a carb guy most of my life but am now hopelessly addicted to turbos and EFI.

(Now, you know this isn't true, especially in all the time you've been on here.) I'd definitely say the "majority" of those posts are folks switching TO fuel injection, but I've seen probably 10+ racers who got frustrated and went (back) to their blow-thru carb'.

I was being serious, if there were guys that quit trying to make EFI work I don't remember them. My #1 rule in life is , you have to be smarter than what you are working on. The quitters should have got more help and not given up.

Only problem im having is a heat soak. when I the car sits a few minutes after it was at temp, the carb is getting heat soak and getting vapor lock.
