Holley 2300 vs Motorcraft 2100

I have a Motorcraft 2100 1.08 (~280cfm) on my stock 289. I was wondering if a Holley 2300 would be a better carb. I don't want a 4bbl right now. The 2100 is in decent shape, runs decent and has great throttle response.

As far as I know the inside of the motor is stock. It was rebuilt at some point. I only have headers and a Crane electronic ignition module on it.

I was looking at a 350cfm 2300 to rebuild, and was wondering if it would be worth my time and effort.

I don't know if it would be a better carb as the FORD Series carburetors are so easy to tune.

The 2100's come in varying CFM's. Would the CFM chart help?

I found the chart already. I know the 2100 is easy to tune and rebuild, done 3 already. I have never worked on a Holley 2300 and was wondering if any one has any experience with them.

This is the chart I found:

Number = CFM
.98 = 190
1.01 = 240
1.02 = 245
1.08 = 287
1.14 = 300
1.21 = 351
1.23 = 356
1.33 = 424

I have the 1.08 287cfm

The advantage of the HOLLEY is that it will be as working on the front of a 4V. Infinite adjustment and service parts. Jets much easier to find. Power valves calibrated and marked. Accelerator pump adjustment. You can't beat a HOLLEY.
