    Well...
    I got my Holley 670 truck Avenger installed...and tested.
    The carb performed well...taking some rough terrain...
    and some steep angles....
    I was very happy!!!! /forums/images/graemlins/thumb.gif

    I spent a couple of hours tuning the carb...with a vacuum gage...the Holley isn't that easy to tune...maybe the guys that badmouth the carb...were looking for instant bolt-on performance...without turning any screws!!! /forums/images/graemlins/ignore.gif

    I think it performed well...handled anything without hesatation. Also I stalled the truck at a 40 degree angle...it started without any problems.

    I don't think 1 run is enough to tell...but so far....so GOOD!! /forums/images/graemlins/thumb.gif
