You left out Q-Jets. They sound the best.

I bought one of the new 650cfm Thunder Series Carb, seemed like an improvement over the regular edelbrocks. I wasn't happy that I had to file out a hole in the base of the carb so it would drop down on the studs in the manifold. Hopefully thats the only problem it gives me.
Isn't that an off-road carb?!

No, but there is an off road version I believe.

It's based on the performer series, the only real difference is that the vacuum secondaries are adjustable.

I thought the Thunder Series is based on the AVS ...kinda like the performer is an AFB.

Heres what SEMA says, they gave it some award I think.

I found this under the Best Of SEMA.

"These universal designs are based on the wildly popular Performer carbs--with a few upgrades. The Thunder Series has an adjustable, spring-loaded secondary upper air door that enables tuners to play with the secondaries--a feature the counterweighted Performer series didn't have. They come with dual fuel inlets and are available in manual or electric choke configurations"

I have always liked the holleys. As with any carb, run premium high flow fuel filters to keep the tiny gunk out. I have 2 inline, one before the fuel pump, and one after.

you've gotten some good advice so far. my half penny....

the only holley i've ever had was on the truck when i got it, and it was tuned right. I never had any trouble with it.
the truck i have now, i'm running an edelbock. it truely was bolt on and go. I need to get the calibrating kit so i can do some fine tuning, it's rich, but it's been problem free for me.
