  2. I built this 315 Dodge a few years ago for a friend. If my memory serves, he ordered the entire induction system from Larry Fulton and Automotion Rochester Carburetor Service. It wasn't cheap, but it was right, tight, and ready to run.

    Compete kits,are put together an sold by https://vintagespeed.com/
    I been told they are good an can do custom combos.
    Speedway an Jegs,may get what they sell from there?
    I never had the high $s for any kits,my self so made up my own out of what I could get cheap. But did leve me to do all my own tuning.
    Even made'/fab. my own log intake,fuel log an linage. Lot of work n time,but not many $ for my 4x2 on Ford Y-block.

    One suggestion I'd make for any expensive purchase that you might make is to try the help/support line for the product/service before buying.
    If it has no answer, long queues and/or little help, I'd move on to the next offering.

    I agree, Larry Fulton jets the carbs for your application. In my case he asked about engine size, cam choice, etc.
    The set-up came perfectly jetted with first class hardware. After 16 years use I've had no problems!

    Anyone use the aluminum base kit from Vintage Speed. I have some from the early 2000's (new) and was wondering about the longevity of them.

    Tman is right, that's why I wondering about my base kit.

    Best to check the referenced thread on the topic as suggested, but Charlie’s been OK with me, though he did give me a dressing down for not being clear about my application - I probably deserved it.

    thats too bad he has such poor reviews, his products seemed fairly priced. I will have to do further investigation on them because there pricing does seem resonable

    old saying- you get what you pay for......
     
  17. OLD REK is a member on here who lives in Canada and advertises multi carb set ups fairly often. I can’t speak to his work as I never have had the need for what he offers but I would give him a holler and perhaps discuss options. You might do a search for him on here, everything I’ve seen looks 1st class. Besides he’s up in your country. Canada.

    might work.
