Weber vs holley

There seems to be a preference of weber over Holley , just curious if there are any particulars of one over the other

Depends on the application and whether or not the right carb is even available. What do you have in mind?

I rebuilt my 79 258 just like the jeep bible and I used a 350 cfm Holley 2 barrel but noticed it seemed as though most everyone uses the weber and was just curious to no if and why there was a preference

I can't say that I remember anyone here using one and I certainly haven't so I don't guess I can be much help here.

One really nice thing about Webers is the changeable idle jets and the assortment of emulsion tubes and air correctors. On a Holley, most of that stuff takes a drill and tap.

I ran a Holley 350cfm 2 bbl (p/n 07448) for a few years and loved it; smooth idle, great acceleration. I was planning on doing the 4.0 head swap though and read that I needed 390 cfm. I didn't want a 4 bbl so the Weber 38 fit the bill. After some tinkering I finally got the Weber to run as good as the Holley but no better. I still haven't done the head swap.

I had a weber 32/36 before I got the holley 390 4bbl. the weber I had wasn't the true weber from spain, it was junk, wouldn't stay adjusted.
it was ready for a 2nd rebuild in 3 yrs so I got the holley. its the perfect carb for the 258, decent gas mileage and easy to set.

Webers are for Suzuki samurai engines. Only flow like 280cfm on the largest 38/38. My 72" zero turn lawn mower has a larger carb, LOL. No question get a Holley.

Coming from a guy who doesn't know how to set up either one...

Edit: BTW, genius, you may want to double-check your numbers before you puke your trollish crap all over someone's thread.
