Colin, to start with the Holley Street Avenger is not a double pumper, its a 570 or 670 (for your application) elec. choke, vacuum secondary carb, you don't want a DP for the street. The quadrajet is an xlnt carb and not "hell to tune" if you take your time and know what you're doing. Either carb will work for you IF tuned properly. Another source for quadrajets is "I Five Components" (800) 526-9952. They will build you a vehicle specific carb for around $280....but you need to know your engine specs. Don't just tell them its got around 350 hp, most guys way over estimate their engines hp. If you're looking for mileage and who isn't I'd get the q-jet.
