Holley has made it easy to have classic performance with its Tri-Power intake manifold and carburetor systems for small-block Chevy engines.
The world-famous Holley Tri-Power Carburetor System is legendary in Chevrolet circles. It was factory equipment under the hood of the iconic big-block L71 and L89 Corvettes. Holley has brought that look and performance to your small-block Chevy. With the Tri-Power system, you can cruise around economically on the 350-cfm center carburetor or unleash all 1,000 cfm at wide-open throttle to truly have the best of both worlds. Systems include a dual plane, medium rise 3×2 Weiand intake manifold, three Holley 2bbl carburetors (one 350-cfm center carburetor with electric choke and two 325-cfm outboard carburetors) in either a dichromate or shiny finish, high quality steel fuel lines, progressive throttle linkage and reusable air filters with polished housings.
