E85 Dominator Carb recommendation

Hey guys,

in an older post Ive asked about a E85 conversion on my Barry Grant carbs.
Now Im thinking about two complete new carbs instead but I have no experience on E85 carbs, so I would need your help here.

I have the choice between:
-Quick Fuel QFX 1050
-AED competition max pro 1050
-BLP 1050HP pro flow

Im running a 2x4 setup on a 620cui BBF engine, tunnel ram, powerglide in a 2700lbs heavy car.

Thanks
Franz

I gave you my 2 cents on your last post but I guess you did not like it, so I have been running pump grade E-85 sense 2009 and have converted at least 6 of my customer/friends carbs as well and have had very good luck with it and I know from experience that you should buy a E-carb from a builder like Mark Sullens or Justus Daniel (raceone85.com) but in the last few years people like Pro Systems (Pat) or Quick fuel have gotten better with ethanol carbs, so here you go again this is my 2 cents, hope this helps.

Haha I saw that coming
Sorry for that butterbean and thanks a lot for your reply.

I'm just trying the right way to go, my Barry Grant Carbs seem not to be the first choice for performance.. And the conversion would be pretty expensive so I like it better to buy new ones and sell my Barry Grants.

Thanks
Franz

to convert them would be 600 each plus shipping, once they are converted it won't matter who's carbs they were, they go through them and make them new, even if the throttle shafts are worn they fix that too, good luck with what ever way you go, you will be happy with E-85 its a good alternative for inexpensive fuel
