    I am wondering what Carburetors you guys like? I’m running an edlebrock avs2 right now and I like it but I’m wondering if it’s too small for my 360 with an edlebrock top end package. Probably just needs some more tuning.

    You like to fuck around with them or not? If you do then holley its where its at. Ive learned to like the holleys more these days but a good edelbrock 750 will do the job if you dont like messing around.

                  I love the Holley 80457 600 vacuum secondary electric choke for my small blocks... Been running them for decades with great performance and reliability...

                    Install a vacuum gauge and see what it reads on a full throttle run to see if there's room for gain.

                      The TQ hasn't been made in nearly 40 years but there are still new ones out there. I have 5 NOS early ones. I used 1 of the new ones on my Polara in my avatar on the 440. It works flawlessly, always starts, and NO vapor lock. And -NO I didn't have to rebuild it. I installed directly out of the Carter box, adjusted a little bit and I haven't touched it in 10,000 miles.

                          Any carb can be rebuilt. TQ will give better power and mpg especially with an auto trans. I would not have a "fix it constantly Holley" on a street car. LOL

                            What about the new Demon carbs? They look like a TQ, and can even get resin bowl as well.

                            Perfect carb for a 360.
                            When you make the move to a Holley, I'll buy the Ede.

                              Well....we need to know your engine specs and how you are using your car?
                              If it's a warm 360 and you only drive it on the street it's pretty hard to beat
                              600 Edelbrock!

                                I think there's a lot to be said for the Holley Street Demon. It's relatively inexpensive and works very much like an Edelbrock with probably a little better throttle response and probably a little better acceleration..

                                It has a lot of features of the TQ, but it is the standard Carter/Holley bore pattern. It even uses standard TQ floats, so you can pitch the plastic ones and use brass floats.

                                we put one a 440, and it ran great with minimal work.
