    How would this fit on my 350? Hows the quality? Good for an DD/Off Road truck? Whats the MPG like with these?

    They are amazing carbs!!

    However it will take time, patients, and a little knowledge to tune it correctly. This is where many people get fed up with Holley because they have no patients. So if you are willing to work with it, then you will be glad you did!

    The Truck Avenger offers WAY more power potential than any other carb than can handle off-camber situations, and the DEFINATELY includes the q-jet.

    Do a search on the truck avenger, there is a lot on this site about it.

    Q-jet's a better choice IMO, and I disagree with most of what Chevy305 said

    Hmm, I am reading alot of mixed reviews, this actually isnt for my truck, its for my friends truck, but he doesnt have acess to the internet. He has a 350 from a 68 camaro in his, completly rebuilt its purdy and loud, he is running 2.75 piping for the exhause, it sounds like a beast.. .

    but anyways, thanks guys I will just have to do more research..

    Sounds like he's after more performance, so the only way to get it is go Holley!

    I think the holley is not hard or do you need patience. You need patience and some time to rebuild a q jet properly. Overall the q jet is one of the best carbs made period. The holley does work extrememly well off road and i do mean extremely well. If you are running a q jet now excpect a gas mileage drop and the q jet seems to be bit more responsive down low. I think the holley is a great carb but I would get a q jet.
