    Sorry, can't help you on the Edelbrock carb. But we also have a 454 in our '84. It has an Edelbrock intake with Rochester carb. Looking to replace the carb. Would you recommend Edelbrock over Holley?

    We have a TH350. Paired with the 454, we have a real dog. Do you find the performance of the 454 with 700R4 acceptable? Locally, I am looking at $ +2000 to swap in a 700R4. Ouch.

    How did you find out the HP and torque on your 454?

    see now I would do the oposite I bought 2 edelbrock carbs thinking the first was just a fluke nope big piece of #@!%^&***$ I spent 600.00 on carbs brought them in to a shop to see if I was setting them up wrong ? NO just junk !!! I will put a Q-Junk on before I will put another Edelbrock on


    this all my opinion! results for others may vary ( Holleys RULE )

    I went through 4 holleys returning them all to holley for repair, I also thought it may have been my error so I paid a shop to look at it still no go so they talked to holley and had another carb brought #5 still no go, holley sent me a refund I ordered an eddy bolted it on and it worked flawlessly barely had to tune it. So luckily all I lost was alot of time.
