carb upgrade options...

if i do in fact need a new carb, what are some of my options for upgrading? I assume none of them work with the stepper motor, but i don't really know. I don't want to break the bank, but i figure if i'm gonna pay $140 for a reman, i might as well shell out a few more bucks for a holley or something...

Any suggestions?

well i think a lot of guys are going to recomend a weber it bolts right on to the existing intake manifold.......if you want some more power you could step up to a 4 bbl carb but to do that you need a new intake manifold the holley 390 thats pretty common for cj's with the 258 runs about 270'something from summit racing (cheapest ive found) it all depends on how much money your willing to spend im planning on getting a 4 bbl intake and a holley just cause my dad has one and that think takes off when you gas it on his CJ-5
