Weber Holley or Motocraft?
This Carter BBD on my 83 Jeep has to go. It won't idle worth a crap when it's below 60 deg and it doesn't like to run smooth unless I am at 1500+ RPM. I've cleaned it and rebuilt it, which helped some. I have yet to do the electronic bypass in the back. I guess I could give that a try, but I'm thinking I might as well upgrade.
Are the Weber carbs of today better than the Webers of years past? I'm looking at one of the 390 cfm's new but I can't convince myself that they are what the advertisements say - bolt on and go, trouble/maintenance free. For $380, I expect that and then some. For 25% of the cost, I could bolt one of the Holley 500's on which are basically a 780 cut in half. Then again, I could get one of the Motorcraft carbs that are a dime a dozen.
I'm new to the I6 game. You guys are the experts. What are your thoughts?
