it's fine for a carby but you need a regulator!
I have one on the XA and it works fine but it's as noisy as hell

Be sure to check for the maximum pressure allowed for your carb. This can create a safty( fire) problem if not correct.

When in doubt :DON'T

From memory a blue is 15 psi and a red is 7 psi, either come with a reg, either is good unless you want to use nos as well

I run one Holley blue through a Mallory reg set to 6 psi into a race series 850 holler. No issues. (second the noisey as hell comment)

I mounted my holley blue via a coil bracket around the body onto a rubber "button" mount- the one with a thread out each end. You can now only just hear it with the engine off. About as loud as an injection pump cycling before start up.

If you're not driving a manual you're really just steering.

Holley blue is fine, but you need a reg. even with nos. coz your not using nos constantly.

15psi (fact setting for blue) is prob too much for carby.

but rubber mount as others have posted. (save your eardrums, and to stop you going insane on long drives:) )

There is lots of info about the pumps at www.holley.com
Have a look at their techical tips section as well.

The cop said "Do you know why I pulled you over". I said " Well, that all depends on how long you have been following me!"
