Edelbrock or Holley
« Reply #15 on: December 16, 2008, 03:00:57 PM »

In the early years (  ), I always used Holleys cause the OEM Carters were %^$#.
I don't ever remember having a problem.
For some reason I started using the eddies only.  I dunno why.  I think it was because of the name.
Finally, after all these years, I decided to go back to my roots and threw on a Holley DP 750.  It ran perfectly out of the box with no tweaking.  The throttle and cruise control linkage snapped right on with no mickey mousing and operated perfectly the first time.
The secondaries open right on que with no bog or hesitation.  It starts the 1st time cold with one pump, and idles like it was fuel injected.  No farting, pooping, or stunble.
 
It was a true plug and play straight from the box.

Don't forget to buy the Chrysler adaptor for the tranny.  You know.  The one that nobody told you about until AFTER you bought the carb and went to install it?

Yeah, and you'll never see one of THOSE in a C-body (unless your some crazy guy named Jyrki...or one of those other crazy drag-racin' guys...Tony???)

My reman Eddy is just fine for now (a little stumble off idle when cold, but no biggie) Starts quick, almost like FI, does what I need it to do.

When the engine will get it's upgrades, then the TQ comes out

Quote from: CBarge
My Carter carb is actually identical to what Edelbrock makes.(same tooling)
 
That's because Eddy boiught the patent from Carter when they went belly-up.  However, I've been told that you cannot rebuild a Carter using an Eddy kit, and vise-versa.
 
To answer the original question, I prefer the Eddy.  If you go with one I would recommend buying the re-jet kit for the extra 40 bucks.  Even at 750cfm you will probably find that carb on the lean side.  That's the usual complaint against these carbs.
 
I found it to be true....

All new aftermarket carbs are set up on the lean side right from the box.In most cases,you will  have to "set up" the carb to your application.
Fine tuning more likely...

The Thunders aren't as lean as the regular Eddy's  Haven't had to do anything to mine yet.

You miss my point.....most high performing or race engines use Holley or Demon carbs because they are more tuneable and can out-flow any competing carb.....

my Roadrunner is supposed to have a Holley on it because the air-conditioned cars got them
