X2 on the QFT, I've ran them for years with great results! I've seen nothing but trouble out of the Edelbrock carbs..

I agree. Stay w/Holley based carbs.The Edelbrock would be My last pic too. They were popular w/car show crowd for awhile because they were SHINY. Rolling Eyes

Eddy Carbs are OK for daily driver, where you not looking for extreme tuneabiliy and output. I've ran a number of them over the years on street rides, they are very forgiving and work fine.

From what I've seen the E-brock carbs are ok for street duty/car shows, but they don't flow enough for high performance applications.

I'm with Freeloader here, the Eddy's are fine for a street deal and are very forgiving for the novice carb guy. I used several of them on different trucks and they always worked and on a couple of grain hauling trucks they were really nice, because you didn't have to rebuild them every fall before harvest. Cool They are not a performance carb though, so weigh it up for what you are after.
