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.

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 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.

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:) )
