    Man I love the street avenger carb. Had one on my 68 GTO back in the day. Just took it out of the box and installed and it ran like a dream. I would suggest you look at adding a fuel pressure regulator so you can set your pressure and the precise amount you need. Much cheaper than a new carb or fuel pump.

    I forgot to mention, this carburetor has been very good. Just started having trouble with leaking.

    I put the new fuel regulator on and it stopped the problem with the carb. But leaks bad around the regulator. I plan to check with the vendor I got it from to resolve this problem.

    Did you use teflon tape on the threads of all your connections?

    No, I was worried that the gas would eat it up. I'll give it a try. Thanks
