He would have to bring the RPM at a high level so he could leave the line without bogging. He replaced the carb with a Holley 650DP and he dropped .2 sec on the 1/4 and he came off the line really hard with no bogging and with less RPM.
Would have been much cheaper to just tune the Edelbrock rather than replacing the carb.
