    Has anyone tried out the new Holley Truck Avenger Carb??? Seems to be unstoppable. I'm trying ti find how much it's selling for. No one in my area has them for sale yet. Thanks

    The new "wheeler" version?
    Sounds like Holley might be on it. (imagine that)
    A factory installed vent tube. (drag-racers have been doing that for years)
    Side-hung floats with spring loaded needles, might help the Holley with fuel starvation problems on off-cambers and hills.
    Tune-ability of a Holley.
    Primary booster design, From the advertized pictures, the primary booster appears to be -far- better than the old-style Holey booster. Primariry booster design has a huge infulence over oth operating caricatur of a carb.

    I'll stick with a Q-jet. It has all of the above and then some.....

    BlueKnight,

    I'd get a few more opinions about the #1910 first. I bought TWO after reading that same magazine article and have had nothing but problems.....there seems to be a manufacturing quality issue. Both of mine were puking excessive fuel at idle, and I couldn't get the A/F Idle screws to work. [​IMG]

    I've got another LONG post about it on this board....just do a search on the word "NIGHTMARE"......I'm serious!

    I wanted to have a great experience with the Q-Jet.....but it just didn't happen for me.
