I have had more good experiencces with Holley carbs than with Edelbrock carbs. The only thing I have found that runs well with the E carb is a 350 chevy. That is because they are calibrated to run on a chevy, pretty much anything else and you need to change things. if its a daily driver the FoMoCo carbs are tought o beat. If its a race car,a Holley will spank the E carb any day.


its to bad you guys dont run Qjets..

There is no EGR on these old dinosaurs. They have the simple PCV system. As far as a reliable daily driver carburetor, but yet still has zip you can't go wrong with a Motorcraft 4100 series carburetor on top of a Weiand dual plane Stealth intake manifold.

The major difference with the Mexican block, is that it has more nickel content in the block, making it a stronger block.

It's about 25% stronger and because of that you can bore it as much as 0.060 over. Viva El Fordo!
