Never heard of them. But I checked out the link and it looks like one of the typical carb puppy mills. They are trying to convince the public they are some sort of big deal in the business but the "English" on their website is akin to someone working out of their garage south of the border. And the usual minimum wage types appear to be the "technicians" doing the work. I wouldn't deal with them personally.

Bowties are for Pee-wee Herman. "Chevy": even the name sounds cheap, but not as cheap as your Pontiac will be with an LS transplant.

Phil remarked,
"Never heard of them."

Me neither! However, they are a member of the Automobile Parts Remanufactures Association. FWIW. It surprises me that after all these years, I never noticed any advertisements etc about them. Maybe I really do have my head buried in the sand.

According to their "virtual tour" they remanufacture carbs for most of the parts houses. If they are the ones who remanufacture the carburetors for Summit Racing, they I would steer WAY clear of them. Most of the junk Summit sells goes back and replaced with another of equal or worse standards.

In there description- "Each core is handpicked from our climate controller warehouse, we do not use Junk Yard cores".

So where were the cores before they were in the climate controller warehouse.
As long as the hood is on the vehicle, a junk yard may be the best place to find an unmolested carburetor. IMO..

Then they don't proof read there own web page.
