All good ideas! I'll mess with it a little bit, but before long I'll likely buy one of the factory refurbished Holley Street Demon off of their ebay store. You can get them for $200 and they are completely gone through and restored to factory condition. In fact most of them never had anything wrong to begin with but people sent them back from not knowing how to set them up. I have one on my LS swapped 79 and I love that thing!

Re: Do you have a 1972 Plaid Pickup?

Holly is definitely a little harder to set up than the edelbrocks. But you get used to what you normally run and have to work on. Mine I put in the spring needle and seats and the correct jets and havnt had a problem in 20 years. I'm pushing toward putting a stand alone injection system on next. Like holly projection setup. Seems like a very simple install and runs off of internal sensors. Either way fix it up and enjoy. Mine was down with many mods for a few years and I couldn't enjoy driving it and it really slowed my progress down.

I definitely agree with you on the difficulty of the Holleys! I fought a Quick Fuel carb for weeks on my K10. The newer Street Demons are a different animal entirely though. Kind of a bastard stepchild of an Edelbrock, Thermoquad and Quadrajet. Really easy to set up and great throttle response.

That's cool. I'm just cheap and would try a rebuild in what I had first. Lol. But you can always sell The edelbrock and put the cash toward what you want in there.
