Default Holly VS Edelbrock

Looking at buying ether a Holley Truck Avenger Carb or an Edelbrock Thunder Series off road carb. The Holley is an off road carb designed for 40 climbing and 30 side and nose down angles. It is a 670 cfm. The Edelbrock is the same as there performer series carbs with a Quik-Tune secondary air valve and side mounted fuel chambers that makes it less likely to flood while climbing. This one is a 650 cfm. Witch one would you buy? :?: :?: :?:

I'm not familiar with the Edelbrock, but I have a Holley and it has been great so far. It runs pretty solid on angles and it's very easy to work on/adjust. I'd recommend the it.

I played with my Edelbrock for years. Went to a truck avenger and was happier.

I have another vote for the truck avenger. I have the 470 on my AMC 304 and I have been happy with it. It has done everything that I expected it to do and beyond. Worth the money IMO

I ran the Eddel 1406 for a while and HATED IT!!! Got a Holly TA 670, pulled it out of the box and only had to set the idle. It was purely awesome on the trails.
