I bought a TQ from David that I hope to use in the future.  He also fabbed up a hard line to go from the pump to the carb and added a pressure gauge, too

Ahhh Demon Sizzler....I've been on that site many times.  I would not hesitate to send a TQ to him to have it gone over and set-up....if you don't want to take the time to set-up your own.

I am not a fan of the Carter Carbs... there never seems to be enough shot to stop a stumble off idle if you stand on it. If you have lots of converter there is no problem as you would be off the idle circuit when you hammer it.

That is the bonus of the Holley is the ability to overcome the stumble off idle with extra shot.. hence the name everyone seems to call the Carter " Thermobog"

Do not blame the carb if you chose yourself to use a slow torque converter
 
But seriously, the TQ was originally a race carb that has been further developped for street use. It is a very complex carb to adjust though, and not everyone seems able to tune them properly (I have to admit cant myself...).
 
I am no specific fan of anything related to gasoline, so not of Carter stuff either. But the TQ at least looks big (and big is good), and I really like the huge secondaries.
 
The thing I really dislike on holleys is that you have to remove the aircleaner even for adjusting idle speed. Also hate that holleys are susceptible to leaks, potentially resulting in gasoline on a hot engine.

Exactly...if you know how to set one up you should not have any stumble off the idle circuit.  Heck the one I had on the 360 in my 87 ram ran like it had TBI...pump several times and fire...you could go almost immediately and it would never stumble during warm up.  But it does take a lot of tweaking and set-up to get things right....with TQ's the devil is in the details.

Eherenberg says to use a 74 to 77 intake.  It has an EGR, but you can cover that.  It has something to do with the way the throttle base is ported and the way it flows.  I picked one up for 75 bucks

I ran a TQ on my fury with a 400 and had no probs with it. I also do a good job at rebuilding them (at least Stan said the guy he gave the TQ I did for him liked the job) I am also going to call a possible connection that will put me in posesion of several that i will rebuild and offer to everyone here will keep y'all posted on that.
