GEN 2 LT1 INTAKE TEST-CARB VS EFI! STOCK LT1 EFI VS GM DUAL-PLANE & EDELBROCK VRS CARB. WHO WINS?

I’ve got a Gen 2 LT1 in a 1956 Chevy, and it has always been a fun engine. It’s mostly stock, but when we put a stand alone EFI on it and significantly improved ignition, we were able to squeeze a surprising amount of extra power out of it. So when I saw Richard doing more testing on his LT1 I figured there was some good stuff to learn. Check out the video below and see what you think of his testing intakes on this bad boy to see if the EFI is better or is a dual plane and a carburetor the really good setup?

CHECK OUT THIS VIDEO WHERE I RAN A STOCK, GEN-2 LT1 ON THE DYNO WITH THE FACTORY EFI LT1 INTAKE AND THROTTLE BODY USING A HOLLEY HP MANAGEMENT SYSTEM.
