just a thought for you. I use this calculator to determine the size of carb that will be needed. A lot of guys are putting huge carbs on a motor, and it is not needed. It just wastes that high price fuel. A properly sized carb will produce the same horsepower as a larger carb on the same motor, and be much more efficient.

Have mixed results myself.. I ran and Edelbrock on my YJ and it did a good job offroad even off camber and going up steep hills. On the other hand I am running an Edelbrock on my CJ7 and it sucks on any kind of inclines and steep hills even with a offroad kit installed. I switched out the Edelbrock to a Holley Truck Avenger on the CJ and it was like night and day difference. The Truck Avenger seemed to run smoother right off the bat and better throttle response. Yes they can be a pain to tune, but look at the knowledge you learn by trying to tune them. Just my 2 cents
