I have not had one done there but I have heard of people that have gone there and been happy with the results. I had mine rebuilt by a guy in Melbourne, I can give you his number if you want. I stuffed around with mine for a few years playing with bit's and changing stuff. I wish I have sent it away when I first bought the car and I would never had had all the problems I did....

What exactly do you mean by bought out to 650? They are 750cfm standard.
Ive never used sams performance but from what ive heard at many forums over time they are just about the best at tuning these carbs.
If all you want is a rebuild kit put through it then you can do it yourself, they really arnt hard to rebuild.

Pigsy there are cars around running 10's with a Q-Jet. Mine runs a low 11 now. Certain Holley's are easier to maintain by an inexperienced person but not necessarily any cheaper. It only cost me $400 to get mine setup properly. A Holley 6777 double pumper rebuilt would cost about the same maybe more. Plus mine still also has all the original pollution hooked up to keep to local constabulary happy and better fuel economy.
