Hot Rod - - Are Carbs Still King? -

Like the Mast in­take, the Edel­brock Vic­tor Jr. was de­signed to run in in­jected form as well. Luck­ily, Edel­brock sup­plied the nec­es­sary fuel rail and in­jec­tors that al­lowed us to plug the in­jec­tor holes while run­ning with the car­bu­re­tor. Equipped with the Hol­ley 950 Ul­tra XP carb, the LS3 stro­ker pro­duced

651 hp at 6,800 rpm and 564 lb-ft of torque at 5,200 rpm. Note that the Vic­tor Jr. pro­duced higher peak num­bers than its dual-plane brother, the Per­former RPM, but the 500 lb-ft of torque pro­duced at 4,000 rpm couldn’t match the dual plane’s 533 lb-ft. The sin­gle-plane Vic­tor Jr. did of­fer higher av­er­age power and torque num­bers than the dual plane, a sure in­di­ca­tion that ac­cel­er­a­tion (at a dragstrip) would be bet­ter with the sin­gle plane.
