Does anyone have an opinion on predator carbs? My boat has a 460, some supposed custom grind comp cam, ot's, tunnel ram and above mentioned carbs. I've heard good things, but wanted to know if anyone has experience with them on a jet boat.

Any pictures of the set up ?

I don't know anything about the carbs though but I've heard some good stuff about them after some tuning.

S CP :D

I'll see if I can get some pics up later. I've only had it about 10 days. It seems like it wants to load up pretty easy, but that is just on the trailer. Callies customs has some rebuild kits I guess I should order. I don't think predator is in business anymore.

I had one on mine at one time, best throttle response out of any carb I ever had on the boat, it was instant RPM. Only time I went thru a full tank and ran out of gas on the water. Kind of finicky, was hard to start when the engine was cold, looks are way cool, takes a while to get one right, carry some spare gaskets if your messing around with one because you wont find one unless you mail order it.

Here is a pic of the set up. Hope it works well.
Hey is that boat for sale a couple of months ago? Are you from Waller? If its loading up you might need to go to a smaller cam in the carb? How much motor do you have? I have a set I am gonna run on my Blower motor.

I had one a long time ago on my Nova and loved it! What kind of fuel press are you running? Seemed to me that if it was on the high side, the carb ran real rich. Once its dialed in though, you can pretty much forgetaboutit!!
Love to be different too.
