Not with it sticking out a foot above the hood! :lol:
Ah, come on now, "Its Stock" ! 🤞
It all fits under my "stock" T/A replica hood, too. :twisted:

Just checked out of curiosity, but Holley's web site says none currently available. Too bad, cuz the "regular" price for a new 80496 is... uhhhh... pretty freakin' high, IMO. :shock:

If the OP hadn't specified "I want a dichromate finish, traditional type carb", I'd agree.

Re: Carb selection question

The intake has to fit under a stock hood. This isn’t a max effort deal, by any means. What series of Holley (I want a dichromate finish, traditional type carb) would provide the Venturi size and ratio you are suggesting Brad? I believe the 830 HP with down leg boosters has a Venturi size on 1.56 Th...

The Holley Street Dominator for a BB Mopar is a low-rise single plane w/ relatively small runners. I see nothing wrong w/ that choice of intake, although a Performer RPM might be better in the torque department and make comparable HP.

Re: Carb selection question

I suspect from a previous time working on someone else's 830 annular that the out-of-the-box tune for it could be pretty far off for what you've described. You don't have killer compression or cam, so the RPM range w/ your combo is probably about "done" by 6200. A smaller venturi downleg config with...

Re: Repro stamped steel pulleys explode at high RPM?

Yeah, I thought it might be sort of an obscure question for here. < crickets > FWIW, I was looking for an alternative that, in addition to being a single v groove, would reduce the crank pulley diameter a bit from the standard 6-5/8". I'd pinged a number of people in the past about using the Moroso ...

Repro stamped steel pulleys explode at high RPM?

I was looking at a replacement reproduction crank pulley to switch from 2 v-groove to a single v-groove model. Then I noticed the disclaimer about not exceeding 6000 RPM with the reproduction part... which is a concern if that's legit. Anyone encountered this type of issue? I was also looking at bil...

Re: The Decker Machine carb???

How many distinct Twin Blade bodies are there? Which ones require a larger air cleaner base than a standard 4150? What size ac base is needed for the ones that don't use a 4150 base?

Re: The Decker Machine carb???

I think the Twin Blade is a very cool design. I do recall when they first came out that someone (engine builder whom I don't recall at the moment) was saying his testing w/ individual O2 sensors showed some odd fuel distribution behavior. And then I never really heard much about it again, so I don't...
