    I was just wondering if anyone was running the Holley Truck Avenger carburator, and some opinions on it. Is it worth the money? Thanks.

    I bought one a month ago, it started and ran out of the box but still stumbles every once in a while from take off. I've not adjusted anything on it yet as I only drive it about once a month. Off road its as good if not better than my old quadrajet and it seems to be getting me better mileage..so far.

    I'd say its worth it I paid $369.00 for mine here in the DFW area.

    I have one and it does pretty good, but it has a bad hesitation off idle. Come to find out the older versions have a problem.

    When you buy one, make sure it is a new one; especially if you purchase one off ebay.

    One the air horn there is a date stamp and a list number. You want a list number that reads 90670-2.

    The "-2" is key. "-1" is the older version, and you'll never get it tuned properly.

    Here's a pic from their site showing what I'm talking about.

    Even with the hestitation, I still think it is a great offroad carb. Hasn't stalled on me yet.

    Acutally Holley said if I send them the -1 I have, they will send me a new -2. My carb is going UPS today.

    MRk5 isnt BSing with that, the first one I had was an early 2 and had a problem with one of the bowl weights. The first question they asked was if it was a 1 or not when they ran the # they arranged through a local dealer to have it replaced same day.

    i had two of them,the first one sucked really bad.i got it right when they came out,had a ton of problems.the 2nd one was a little better,it was a -1 on the air horn. i could never get the choke working right,traded it in for a q-jet.maybe holley has fixed all the problems now?It sure looks cool.

    i had trouble with it on the smallblock, bigblock also. a combination of problems led me to spend more $$$$ and start over. i went to a edelbrock 750 with spring loaded needle-seats and jetwork. the holley is on the new project but never fired! by the way there is no -1 or -2 after the 90670 ???? will holley swap out the old ones? :dunno:
