Yeah, as a matter of fact, it's still in the plastic bag in the box! :wow:  Gary, I had to go to Arizona on an unexpected trip and won't be home until late tonite so it will be Thursday before I can get the shipping total.

Guess you guys did not read the ad well enough - it is new in the box :)

I said wouldve, because I didnt bid.  I did read the ad.  I wouldve bid more than $85.  Sorry for the weird wording.  Heck of a deal anyways  :bigsmile:

Okay so now I've got the intake and am wondering which carb I should use with it on my 72 400 RR Clone. 

Any suggestions? 

The car is stock now with single exhaust but I plan on installing the intake & carb shortly along with adding dual exhaust at around the same time. Obvioulsy I want some extra punch but don't really plan on running it at the track or anything.  The car is my daily driver and as such I'll need a choke on the carb..

I would suggest checking out the new Holley Street Avenger series. Vac. secondries, and an electric choke. They look purdy too.  :thumbsup:

Mike or anyone else for that matter,

What size?  670 or 770?  May do it this weekend - if it ever warms up!   :villagers:  Dagum Al Gore's "Global Warming" actually brought us SNOW the past couple of days  :stirpot:

If it is stock an you do not plan on ever racing it, then I would go with the 670.  It may also get better mpg if it is a daily driver.

I agree with MEK and jacksboys, the Holley Avenger would be a great carb to go with that manifold, and if you're not looking at track time the 670 would make a great street carb with great drivability.

Some people on Moparts highly recommended getting a TQ.  what do you think abouut going that route?  I can get a factory rebult unit for right around $200.00.  A couple of people also commented that these even get better gas mileage versus a Holley.  Is that true or another Mopar Urban Legend?
