    IMO the NOVI carbs are far superior. The billit Buckshots were a pain to tune and not sure if anyone ever really got them to work right.

    NOVIs have been on my boat for years and barely have to touch them except for the fuel pumps. External pumps would be the way to go.

    NOVI racks usually go for $900-$1000 used.

    At the World Finals in 01 or 02 I saw Buckshot billit carbs going for $150 a piece, didn't see anyone buying either.

    Someone may have got them to work by now but I haven't heard of it.

    I don't think there is really a need for them. The Novi carbs will give you better snap and holeshot power then the OEMs and an annular discharge carb like BlackJack (not to be confused with Buckshot) will give you a little better topend. Many here have had great success with the OEMs.

    I know everyone will tell you to go with the NOVI carbs but I run 50mm billet buckshots and they work great so far. Insaine acceleration! They are a little bit harder to tune but I think it's worth it.

    I plan on getting a set of 48 NOVI's to test against the Buckshots.

    Just my .02!

    What kind of setup on the boat? Single pipe/tripple?

    Glad to hear someone made them work.
