A lot of stuff isn't available right now. I've been waiting on a Quickfuel 1200 now since last September. Anyone recommend a custom place to try?
Thanks Mike

I used BLP for a lot of carbs back in the old days when I ran a carb. No idea if they have parts in stock or not so you'll have to call them.

Buddy of mine has Bo Laws Holley on his car and loves it.
He bought it maybe 8-10 years ago.
There's also Thumper (IIRC) on this board, though I haven't seen a post from him in some time.
I've never heard anything but praise for his carbs.

My Gary Williams carbs always ran great out of the box. I have had 4 or 5 of them over the years and have 2 of them now.

Lots of carb tuners out there for sure. My suggestion make some calls and see who is willing to work with you and do what you want done. There is one on here Dominic Thumper Carbs. We work with Dale Cubic closely but more because we have a personal relationship with him. AS far as carbs nothing is better than a Braswell IMO but they come at a price. But anyone named here can help..Just DONT call Pro Systems smile

Dom@Thumpercarbs can get it done for you. He uses BLP parts and builds one heck of a great performing carb. He builds billet Dominators or 4150's. Not only do they perform top notch, but they look badass as well if that matters. I currently have 2 on a T ram performing as well or better that FI. Just spoke with him yesterday, he didn't mention waiting on parts, so you get something built right away. Give him a call, you wont be sorry, just all smiles.

Yep use Dom also. His carbs are super high quality and built specifically for your build. And you get jets and bleeds. Customer service with Dom is basically endless. And you talk directly to him.

We use nothing but APD with our alcohol carbs. I did some horse trading for a 1250 gas carb but haven’t tried it yet

Another vote for Dominic of Thumper Carbs!!!! His carbs have worked awesome on all my mopars...I highly recommend one of his billet ones with blp jets....I could not believe how good the plugs looked this year with blp jets.

Another vote for Dominic. Petty sure he will rebuild or tune an existing carburetor. Best to call him.

Yep, Dom went through an 8896 dominator we have on the Camaro and it turned out great. up

Al...has Pro Systems gotten bad? It's been 15 years since I dealt w/ them, but they've done 2 dominators for me that I'm happy with. Like I said though, that was years ago.

Honestly, after he gets done correcting stuff on the carb, you might as well sell your old one, and have him build a new piece. That is my plan anyways.

Another vote for Thumper. I'm on my second carb from him and he does a great job. Dom is a good dude

I run an AED dominator which I think works well, my engine builder runs a Bob Book dominator which is deadly consistent and fast, my dad runs an old holley 8896-1 dominator from the 90s which is setup with the factory bleeds, and jets and it was deadly on his engine. These are all race gas dominators.

I have a lot of friends who run APD (Advanced Product Design) mainly on alcohol like Pittsburghracer said and they all love APD. I have a friend who just ordered an APD race gas dominator for a 572 wedge that is currently being built and they were I believe 5-6 weeks out on build time and $1,479. My dad is in need of a new dominator when his 572 Hemi is close to being complete and I plan on him ordering an APD. I would say APD is one of the most popular carburetor/dominators out my way, a lot of guys run their stuff and love it. If I had to order a brand new dominator for my car I would likely order an APD because their price is good, its all billet, and their customer service is great.

Being new to moparts and reading some of these threads I see there are a lot of people who comment about carb shops I never heard of so I am sure they are reputable as well.
