Make no question, today’s racing carburetors aren’t your father’s old carburetors, and thanks to some spectacular innovations from manufacturers like Quick Fuel Technology, the age-old method of inputting fuel to a race motor is a long, long way from dead.
Quick Fuel recently introduced their new single inlet, dual needle and seat billet aluminum fuel bowls, expanding their line of billet components with this large capacity bowl designed with the enthusiast and racer in mind. Launched in August, these new bowls will fit 2300, 4150, and 4500 style carburetors, along with high-horse two-barrel units from any number of racing carburetor manufacturers. Quick Fuel has moved all of the pump channels to their stock location, and despite its size, will work with stock-length bowl screws. Said Quick Fuel’s Bill Wetzel, “We designed the bowls with this capability so that racers wouldn’t need to have all these extra parts to bolt these bowls on and use them.”

The new bowls are CNC machined from 6061 billet and hard anodized for corrosion protection, featuring a black anodized finish. As noted, they’re equipped for use with dual inlet needle and seat assemblies, allowing for double the flow capacity compared to a single inlet part. Other features include a built-in dual sight and glass for float adjustment, a center baffle design, and compatibility with 30cc or 50cc pump assemblies.
“These bowls are a great advantage for racers running alcohol, because they need more fuel, and with the higher horsepower applications, these deliver improved consistency over a standard fuel bowl,” explains Wetzel. Along with naturally aspirated alcohol motors, the extra fueling capacity of these bowls is well suited to high horsepower E85 and blow-through boosted applications.
