Knowing what I know about carter carburetors.
I always wonder why edelbrock chose such a terrible design to remarket.
I think that's what I'll do. I'll just have to learn how to tune it.Ran one for over 15 years, never touched it once tuned. 28 or 9 MPG out of a mild 5.0 with a T5, and ran (LOL) 11's easily. Tuned holley went on it to see if it was any faster and it wasn't. Edelbrock 1405 went back on for the remainder of the time I owned the car.
I like them. You set it, and never have to touch it again. Most people don't know how to tune them though. They are completely different than a holley.
Edelbrocks are "similar" to the carter's but Edelbrocks are (or were at one time) Weber designs that kinda looked like an AVS.
