Looking for a recommendation on a new Holley 4 barrel to replace my quadrajet. I need one that will fit my cowl induction air cleaner without modification
I agree with LEO P and Robin the Quadrajet greatest fuel mixer ever designed. IF ther was anything that the G / M engineers did better than anyone else it,s The Quadrajet 4bbl and the G / M window distributor . Fix the Quadrajet. They made two one that would flow up to 750 CFM for all small blocks and one that would flow up to 850 CFM for all big blocks in all their divisions.The thing about Quadrajets is it will only flow what the engine needs and it has those small front barells for economy . Holleys are great carbs but most of the time they need to be tweaked right out of the box and re jetted but not aways. the only other carb i like is the old CARTER A FB with the 3 screws up front. Re build your Qjet you wont be sorry . AlexI do believe you are making a bad chioce, Why? I have a 1 owner 70 LS-5 -M-22 with a Q- Jet ( The org. 7040205 ) Its just fine . On my daily driver, Its a 468 in my 70 Nomad Wagon. I get 18.7 MPG on the highway. 17.7 with the A/C operating. Yea it also has a Q-Jet. The Carb. to replace the G.M. Q-Jet......... Has NOT been invented yet. Hey now,,, Good luck with your Holley. I can not say anything bad about a Holley, Because I have never owned one. But I do have a few extra Q- Jets sitting in my toy box.
