Default Have to agree....

A friend of mine said he pulled the Holleys off of his engine, put two Edelbrocks on it, and when he started the engine he sat back in a chair and watched it idle and run like a clock, and he said to himself "What have I done wrong, I didn't even have to adjust these things"!

No muss no fuss no bother.... JMHO

Never had good luck with Holly carbs on street cars... Edelbrock remains my fav!

Rust... Mother Nature's paint job... don't fool with Mother Nature!

I've got five cars with Holleys, one with an Edelbrock, one with a Quadrajet, and the one under construction will have two Autolite two barrel carbs. Eventually the dragster will have two Autolite two barrels instead of the single Holley.
