    Default Proform Race Carbs

    Does Proform make a good carb? Can someone give some plus and minuses to their 1050 4150 race carb please. I have an opportunity to acquire one in a trade for real cheap and I need to know if itís going to be worth it. The carb is almost new, just a couple passes on it before he blew up his motor.

    I have been running a Pro Form 950 and I love it. It is easier to make adjustments than a Holley and parts are cheaper if you need to fix something or want to make changes. That being said I won't be going back to Holley, I just bought a tunnel ram and I'm going with two Pro Form 750's.

    lol, they're made in Bowling Green, same place the Corvette is made, and I think Holley has a place there too.

    I cant speak on the 1050 but the 750 and 850 work nice. Have seen improvements on the dyno over holley hp series in back to back tests.

    Good to know. You touched on a topical issue. I would appreciate if you'd written about how to fill a form online. By the way, if anyone is facing a problem of filling a form, I've found a template here http://pdf.ac/15Szna. You also can esign the form and fax it.

    I had one and it messed up the accelerator pump every time I ran race fuel through it. Just sharing my experience. Now I'm on a Dominator and love it..
