Holley Carb Question

ive noticed lately that 830 cfm race carbs are cheaper than 750's and alot cheaper than 850's. anyone have an idea why this is. used to be the bigger the holley, the more it cost. i noticed in jegs an 830 race carb is only 450 bucks now. are the 830's different somehow? i have a pro form center carb on my race car. its supposed to be 830 cfm too, and it works great. i wonder if theyre building the 830's with this centersection and getting a good deal on them. anyone know the deal?

Supply and demand I would imagine.

750 is a way more popular application,so they kick you where it hurts to buy 850

Sometime the ones with a metering plate rather than a secondary metering block are cheaper also. generally the 4160 style I believe are cheaper than the 4150 style.
