What is the biggest advantage of the Truck avenger, comparing it to regular 4 barrel 650 single pumper?

I have ran both and they are both very good carbs. Go with the one you feel most comfortable with or the one a close friend knows how to tune but I am betting either one is pretty close out of the box.

I just put a 670 T/A on my yj 350 sbc swap and it works great.... steep climbs and decents and no, none, nada, flooding... Works great in my opinion... I was running a 780 w/vac secondaries, and it would flood, burble and fart on a really rough road when trying to get down it at speed...

If you do go with the Holley, after the floats are set correctly I recommend getting rid of the clear sight plugs sometimes they are ok and other times the break off flush for no reason even if you tighten by hand. Not to bad to get out, but why deal with it.

The directions clearly state that those clear plugs are supposed to be removed after the float level is set.
