Drive around on a small 2-barrel carburetor with electric choke for easy starting, better idling, low speed response and improved fuel mileage. When acceleration is wanted, a mechanical linkage opens four more barrels for response like a big Holley® double pumper and even more airflow. As long as we are fantasizing, we would like a fuel curve that was within fuel injection parameters from idle to wide-open throttle and would cost less than fuel injection, of course. It would be fuel injection benefits combined with legendary Holley® tune-ability. And you could specify a complete package already run in and tuned for your car at the factory. How about a high flow, big port manifold with equal runner lengths, custom three deuce mechanical (no vacuum secondary’s allowed), custom Billet air cleaner top and bottom, low restriction filter, fuel log to carburetor and fittings.

Flowed, tested and shipped, ready to sit between the heads, hook up fuel lines, throttle cable and drive.

Looks? Of course! It’s for a Street Rod, isn’t it? We could start with a polished Billet plate between the manifold plenum and carbs with Billet air cleaner top and bottom, polished or brushed satin finish. Machine polished and hand detailed carburetor bodies in bright silver with exclusive furnace cured catalyzed clear coat which is impervious to carb cleaner, Brake Kleen®, and Gumout®. A bright, easy-to-maintain finish that looks better than any Holley® straight out of the box. Or, at no extra cost, the same finish technology in a gold dichromate finish in a more traditional style. Similar to the Steurnman and Lange, 200 MPH 1932 Ford Street Rod that won “Best Engine” at the 2002 America’s Most Beautiful Roadster Show.

A Chevy lover’s fantasy with the “best of both worlds” fuel injection benefits with tunnel ram performance, 2-barrel drive-ability and economy.

This exclusive fantasy is now a reality from C&S Specialties.

Three 2-barrel Holley® carburetor packages have not existed for small block Chevy’s because there is simply not enough space for three Holley® carburetors. Especially if you want to retain metering blocks to allow accelerator pumps and idle transition circuits on end carburetors to generate strong acceleration and smooth idle/drive-ability. These refinements are even sacrificed on some big block OEM applications, which have only main circuits on end carburetors. It takes over 180 machining operations to make this package happen. Idle to wide-open throttle fuel injection fuel curve precision on a carburetor is no accident.

The final stage of development was the real world testing on a 1915 T-bucket. Fuel injection 02 sensors hook up to all eight cylinders. A computer module recorded data under all types of roads and weather conditions. These tests verified manifold modifications necessary for equal fuel distribution, especially at low speeds.
