you also only have just a few members Opinions as what I gave. go with whichever carb you wish, when you have the edelbrock and you need to tune it, have fun, you have to do so with metering rods, if you want to quicken the rate the secondary`s open you have to shave metal off the tab and pray you don`t shave it too much if you do it`s ruined. secondly, all carbs have to be tuned, there`s many on this board that trashed there edelbrocks, there demons, there Quadrajets, etc all because they don`t know how to work on them or tune them, it`s not the carbs fault the operator don`t know how to tune it. a carb is a carb, it`s a simple device that meters the air fuel mixture and that`s all it does. there are members here who swear by and swear at many different types of carbs and go on claiming this one is better no that one is better, the best one is the one that works for you. I`ve ran edels, holley`s, Quads, Demons, and of them all I perfer a Quadrajet, and I`ve seen so many on this board call them Quadrajunk and etc. I understand how they work and how to work on them, there simple to fix and just as easy to tune and maintain, yet the small primary`s in a mildly hot rodded small block makes it so sensitive it`s almost like fuel injection, and the massive secondary`s are there when WOT throttle is needed. as I already said, run the edel, when it gives you problems you`ll feel the same way about it as you do the Holley and any other carb you use until you learn to fix them, there`s no such thing as a hassle free carb.
