Holley Truck Avenger Carb

I have an 85' CJ7 with 304V8 built for off-road. The engine is .030" over with mild cam. I currently have an Edlebrock carb but it cuts out going up steep inclines. I have read about the new Holley truck avenger carb and they advertise that this carb will climb 40 hills. I was currious if anyone has bought one yet and tried it out on the hills. Please reply and let me know what you think. Should I spend the $400 for the Holley or do you have ideas on the Edebrock to help me climb the hills.

I don't know anyone specific, but from all the testing articles I've read the holley lives up to the talk. As far as the edlebrock a friend of mine is running one and was having the same problem. We found out they make an offroad kit for them and got it. It was around $30 but made a hell of a difference so he is staying with it. Just my 2cents.

I run a street avenger 570 and i like it alot more than the edelbrock 1406. Spent 3 months jetting and adjusting the 1406 and never really liked it. Ive been too lazy to adjust the 570 because it ran that much better right out the box (only set floats, adjusted choke, idle speed, fast idle, and idle mixture). This is all on a new 304 that is stock, just a performer intake and headers.

A stroke bolder, a pinch better.

Check out the newest issue of JP Magazine, they just put one in there Wagoneer Panel Delivery and liked it, ran good right out of the box, little big for the motor, but they had a 283?? Chevy in it.
