    350 small block

    Hi all, any 350 gurus out there. I’ve been looking through a pile of paperwork that came with my trike. The original owner who ordered it from the US had a choice of engine stock 350 crate engine or the “ high performance ZZ3 ( this was in 95) He went for the stock 350 as stated on the invoice. Would anyone know the spec of a GM stock 350 1995/96 ?
    Thanks

    I contacted Boss Hoss with my VIN number to get the full spec of my engine. Turns out it was the cheapest option at the time (1996)
    It’s a L81 that’s 190 BHP stock. I’m guessing it won’t matter what carb I fit is not going to light up the back end ??

    190 hp is a trike will light up everything if you can get all the power down.

    I run a stock gm350 in a car. Put a 500 edelbrock on.works really well

    Any actual recommendations. There seems to be so many. Don’t want to buy new but there are plenty of old second had ones about some cheaper than others, Everyone says a 750 is too big for a stock 350 but that’s what GM put on it from new

    a smaller carb will improve responsiveness at the expense of some power loss at higher rpm. economy should also improve. also if you can't light up the rear tyres on a trike with a 350 v8 either you're doing something wrong or there's something seriously wrong with the engine/box.
    neil.
    need a job done on your project? i may be able to help.

    If you buy an old secondhand carb ask yourself why its old and secondhand..

    To be honest I can now spin up the rear. Not too impressive with no LSD. The biggest issue when it comes to playing is twisting the throttle in one go to get the secondary’s open. I need to make a linkage that puts the cable closer to the throttle plate spindle. The q-jet has small primary’s and I can get about 28 mpg before the clean up
