Gas Research carbies?

Has anyone had much to do with these? Roughly how much are they to buy and do they work well?

Re: Gas Research carbies?

They are extremely expensive to buy. $3500+ for a dual carb setup new. I've always been of the opinion they were the best bar none but I've heard some terrible reviews lately from people I know are clued up.

I'm going to wait and see.... fact is I can't afford them right now anyway!

Just like a Tsunami.

nah they cant be that expensive, i know the gra throttle body's are $440 and the b2 convertors are $180 with a primer valve. I want to put my ea on just gas, its dual fuel atm i think i just need the gas throttle body.

Call GRA and ask them how much a new twin throttle body, dual converter setup is installed. $4000 last I asked (about 6 months ago).
