    Holly sucks especially for offroad. Stick with a Quad.

    The only thing I know is, put a Qudra- Jet back on. In my opinion it is the best carb made for a 4x4.
    The only thing better is fuel injection.
    If you are going to shell out big bucks for a Holley avenger. Check out these before you buy. jetchip.com
    I recomend getting the stage 2 carb. Jet will set up the carb just for your truck if you want /forums/images/graemlins/thumb.gif

    Edelbrock makes a Q-jet. Anyone have any opinions?

    I've got a performer right now that's okay, but it starts hard if it sits longer than a day. It also barfs quickly if I get at an angle.

    I also have my original uber-omission Q-jet. Do you think it's any good? I'd have to figure out which vacuum ports to plug up and all that.
