Most carbs with run and probably be a little fat. I was tuning an Edelbrock carburetor for a customer and had it dialed in fairly well. He went to see his friend and was convinced to take the Edelbrock off and put on a Holley. Unless one is using a high quality AFR gauge most people are shooting in the dark for the most part.
I think you made some good points, but it would be better to see the same size carbs tested on a single engine. For example, a 650 AVS2 vs. one of the many 650 Holleys on a mild 350 Chevy.
Back in the day 2280 out of the box was great one off one on well carter style back in 72.from the dealer😉
I had great luck with a Carter AFB
Neither, Quadrajet reigns supreme.
Hands down, Holley.
I had 1 edelbrock not a good 1 for me
Thermoquad used by Mopar
I have a question's IF I may. I have an 1984 (I think it is) 350 cu in sbc engine. I'm gonna replace the junky old Carb on it. I'm trying to make up my mind on what to put on it. Please some HELP on this PLEASE. My engine is bone stock it's in a Chevy c-60 2-ton truck, it has an old Rochester carb now, I'm thinking either a Holly or a Edelbrock but Not sure of the correct size for the CFM's 500-600-650? I just run this truck with light loads and around 60 MPH is all.
How about a Rochester , will it work right out of the box ?
I have run both holley and edelbrock carburetors and have i have just purchased a new avs2 carburetor but the holley is still number 1 for me
NOTHING BEATS A DECENT HOLLEY
Edelbrock carbs are crap !!! We use them for wheel chocks at our shop no shit
Not perfect out of the box, but they work well out of the box
I have a 88 dodge 360 it has the Quadrajet on it which one would you suggest I go to I pull trailers with and it seems udder powered don’t care about economy just want power it’s a farm truck
Quick fuel brawler 650 for my amc401 jetted down 2 sizes. Uped ifr one size down 3 sizes on iab’s perfect now
most carbs are good out of the box.It's the fine tuning where problems arise
Why would you change a performance carb unless you are prepared to fine tune it ?
