What are your thoughts on AED carbs?

I am doing a lot of looking at carbs. I was wondering if the extra money was worth the difference. Thinking about the 750 to 850 DP in the modified series. Maybe the next step down from it. Or should I just get a Holley an be done with it.

I can't comment on their carbs, I haven't used one, but AED's Holley carb rebuild kits I consider to be the best, better than Holley brand kits. The AED kits give new idle needle screws, and needle and seat adjustment nuts and lock screws, and the vacuum secondary kits include the new secondary diaphragm. Holley makes you buy those pieces seperately, costing you more,... and the Holley brand kit is already higher priced than the AED kits to start with.

The AED kits also have all non-stick gaskets and nylon washers too. Very nice race level parts at a really good price.

I would think their carbs would be just as good. I see many racers on other web sites using them.

Eric,

I spoke with one of them today. He agrees that one of the 850's would work with my setup. They do not cost too much more than a Holley. That is most likely the way I will go.

Never ran an aed but I couldn't be happier with my quickfuel and it was cheaper than the hp series holley. Check them out before you make your decision. Jon.
