    Default Predator carburetors

    Looking for a set of Predator carbs for a tunnel ram setup. Will even purchase one at a time if someone has just one to sell. Email me at [email protected] Jeff.

    Default Predators

    Because they run so BADASS and easy to dial in when tuned right and rebuilt.... And look so bitchen when detailed. Have them on 3 different motors. polished the bottom pictured factory finished one in a day. Don't knock em till you try em.

    Default Carbs

    There so under estimated!!!! So many people talk shit on forums about them and have never tried them. They run like a sombitch.... I have a few tricks up my sleeve and love the damn instant throttle response. I can idle 2 on a tunnel ram at 1000rpm. Been running holley forever and tried a few Predators and wont go back!

    You guys are right. I have never tried them, and never known any body to have good luck with them either. I think thats cool you guys have had good luck with them. However, in pure numbers, there are lot more holleys on motors out there, and probably a lot more predators on craigslist. lol. I do like the ideas of having different stuff. Good Luck with your project. littlejocko

    You are right about mega Holleys out there. Predators in my mind are like a secret. Once you know how to tune them there always turn key throttle endless happy and never leak...

    Just wanted to boot this back to the top and see if anyone has a Predator carburetor (6000 PXP) they would like to sell. I have found, 1 still need 1 more. Thanks, Jeff.
