Hot Rod - - Are Carbs Still King? -

Af­ter run­ning the Su­per Vic­tor with the smaller 950 Ul­tra XP car­bu­re­tor, we re­placed it with the larger 1050 Ul­tra Dom­i­na­tor. Af­ter all, why neck down a 4500 Carb flange with a smaller 950 car­bu­re­tor, right? Ob­vi­ously, the 415 stro­ker (and the Su­per Vic­tor in­take) liked the larger car­bu­re­tor, as the com­bi­na­tion pro­duced 669 hp at 6,900 rpm and 563 lb-ft of torque at 5,300 rpm. The larger car­bu­re­tor of­fered more peak power and torque than the smaller 950 carb, as well as im­prov­ing torque at 4,000 rpm by 2 lb-ft (from 489 lb-ft to 491 lb-ft). When you have a stro­ker LS3 and need an in­take, it looks like big­ger re­ally is bet­ter!
