I've used 600 and 750 Edelbrocks and 600-950 Holleys on about any Ford from 302s, 351s, 390s, a 406, and on to a couple 460s. Both carbs work well though the Edelbrock is, to me, a simpler carb to work on in place and once set up, easier to maintain. No cup of gas all over the intake whenever you want to make a change, no secondaries vacuum chamber hanging off the right side, the E-brock accelerator pump is fully inside the carb, no bypass tube seals (earlier 4160 versions) to leak and cause fires and no power valves to wonder about.
Some, not all, Edelbrocks do tend to cause somewhat hard starting if left a few days as they will either drain back or boil off - but I have learned to live with that. They are quite susceptable to dirty gas (need a very good filter).
