I had a 4500 series Holly on my '69 Fury cop car with a 440 Interceptor with cop cams and factory duels. When you jumped on it it was like flushing a toilet with gas swirling down the intake.. the gas gage would head south while the speedo headed north accompanied by a nice Funny Car growl out of the Purple Hornies, That was a kick in the butt to race.

Funny, but the ram air IV system on my '68 GTO (pirated from a '69) didn't have a pressurized float bowl..guess the Quadrajunk didn't need one...
That's cause it had a FUEL PUMP!

Splain to me Loosie why pressurized float bowls wouldn't hinder the fuel filling up the float bowls unless the fuel was under pressure too. Don't make no sense 'tall.
