With Barry Grant having closed it’s doors almost 2 years ago and High Performance Industries (the company that owns Holley) owning Demon Carburetion, I was curious to know if they continued Barry’s line of SixShooter induction systems? Figured it would be really nice to be able to get a new from the box Tri-Power unit that boasts 50 HP gain over the original castings, not to mention they’re hard to come by and tend to command a pretty penny.

I'd be hard pressed to believe they're worth 50 hp, unless it's a highly modified application.
Plus they're expensive, upwards of $2500.00.
There are better induction systems out there if you're looking for the best bang for the buck.

If your going to spend that much money go with a nice fuel injection setup you won't be sorry. Runs perfect uses less fuel doesn't smell the garage of gasoline like a carb. Self tuning if you make hardware changes. All good.

Hard to believe anything could touch a Cliff's Quadrajet with a Jim Hand style modified stock iron intake, some folks like to throw money away I guess...
