    I prefer the Blacks Jacks and they are very easy to tune...I run 2 sets of the 48's. Nice set there Jim!

    i love my novi 48's as woody would say "they make big power"

    the novi's hit real hard on demand, thats what gets me off however i have not used blackjacks so i am unable to compare.

    I hope to find 2 Novis and start using them again. Had an older style some time ago, once tuned, worked very nicely.

    I've had both, and thought both "hit" very well, both were not terribly difficult to tune, Art (blackjack) and Tim (novi) are both very helpful and knowledgable regarding tuning their respective carbs. Maybe, just maybe the novis made a little more power up top, but bottom and mid range were neck and neck on my boats. I guess if I did it again I'd buy another set of Blackjacks for the money difference only. I don't think you can go wrong with either carb.

    I have the Blackjack 48's and they are in my humble opinion the best for topend speed numbers. The Novi's will suit you better for bottom end power and hole shot. My experience with the Blackjacks is that the signal crossover is a little lazy and the bottom end does not respond like the Novi's.

    thedome.... Ive heard the signal crossover is a little more rough with bjs in mid throttle responce but you are the first to have said what it caused,a few other guys on different forums and personally have said the bjs still hit hard off the bottom even with the annular discharge but lose a few rpms and mph on top slightly.novis seem to have more votes for bottom end and crisp responce
