    What carb should I get? I need to order asap. I'm looking a the Holly Truck Avenger 670 with Electric Choke or should I go with the Edelbrock Thunder Series AVS 650 Offroad with Electric Choke? Price is about the same so not an issue. Is the electric choke $40 better than the Manual Choke?
    Here's my truck's specs and usage:
    72 K5
    400ci SBC
    Approx. 370hp and 390 ft lbs torq.
    TH350, D44 & 12Bolt
    Light Trail Use
    Heavy foot on street

    Help!

    X2. Jeg's has some nice Q-Jets, I just put one on mine.
    As far as type of choke, which Orange County (state)?

    mrk5 thanks for posting the link. What akiller write up. I think you convinced me to go with the Truck Avenger for my K5. Most of what you said in the write up is foreign to me but if I do have any issues I'll know where to look for my fix. Right on man; I as everyone else appreciated your help.
