They make good boat anchors.

I wasn't going to say that, but the few I've seen ran like a tuna boat!

i know im kinda late postin on this but i aint been here in awile. i have switched most of my cars over to edelbroke.with all my holleys , ive had to keep adjusting them . bought a car with edelbroke on it and i set it and that was it.but all my engines are for high power street not pure drag cars.with a holley i could dial them in but the edelbrokes we just had to set them the best we could.i quess im sayin is that to race i want holley for street ill take the other.besides, edelbroke is prettier.

Make sure your float level is write on for starters, there always off out of the box, I think they bend in shiping. Jetting is a breeze, follow there jetting book, its very easy to pick your main jet & metering rod combination from the graph, Edlebrock also offers a high flow needle & seat. The carbs due work well, they just get a bad rap because they are not tuned like a Holley

Spend a couple bucks and do an O2 sensor in the exhaust with a digital gauge from either Jegs or Summit. Set the timming to best vacume at idle, this will need a good timming light with dwell. Follow what everybody else and your carb jet chart says to get a good baseline and when thats set just follow what the O2 sensor says to get best lean! I did this before taking my Jeep to the dyno shop and they spent an hour trying to get it better but ended up with my settings in the end, proof that it works I guess?
