About Us – Hot Rod Carbs
Our business AUTOMOTION Rochester Carburetor Service, was started in 1983 with the sole intent and purpose of providing ‘Custom Built’ Rochester 4-Jet (4GC) and Q-Jet carburetors to the o.e.m. muscle car restoration market and to nhra / ihra stock / super stock drag racers. Both of these market segments require a knowledge of carburetor function, vehicle air & fuel requirements, and a sharp eye for detail. You can say that we cut our teeth on these two carb models.
* We’ve had a number of customers set nhra / ihra national records with our race prep’d carbs
The Heritage Continues with Our ‘Custom’ Hot Rod Carbs Tri-Power Systems
In 1994 ‘we were discovered’ by Smitty Smith @ Edelbrock and it was Smitty who originally encouraged us to start building these Rochester based Multi-Carb Street Rod / Hot Rod Systems, using their reintroduced #5419 SBC 3-Deuce Intake Manifold. This is when the Authentic Custom Hot Rod Carbs Tri-Power brand was born!
We continue this Hot Rod Carbs focus today by now offering 35+ different applications of Custom Built – Custom Finished – Engine and Application Specific multiple carburetor systems. ALL are intended for the Street and ALL are based on the versatile GM Rochester 2-Jet carburetor.
Our Systems have been used on everything from Daily Drivers and Hot Rods, to TV Feature Cars and Full-On Show Cars, including the Dave Lane built – George Poteet owned, 1932 Ford Sedan Delivery, that was chosen as the Good Guys ‘2008 Street Rod Of The Year’.
Investigate who you are dealing with… 3 Junk Carbs on an Intake don’t make it Tri-Power!
Please be careful of those that have web names / domains like ours and have out right stolen some of our text and descriptions as their own… There’s an old saying that rings true more times than not, “What appears to be the better deal based only on lower initial price, usually ends up costing you more in the end”.
Don’t trust that you’ll get any of our 35+ years of experience, or what we offer from a Mail Order Parts Catalog or a Swap Meet Guru. We are “The Source” and we will be here to assist you with your next project, whether it’s just a few parts for the “Do-It-Yourselfer” or a Complete Custom Built System for those wanting the Premium Piece!
