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.

At this time your money would be better spent on an 05 pump and dynafly

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!
