    Was told that this would bolt right on. Had to buy a $45 adapter plate, different transmission kick down bracket, and different kick down cable, and the piece that attaches the cable to the carb.I am getting about 11 mpg with it on my chevy 350 w/ 350 turbo auto trans. Check the box when you are buying it. My first one was missing the gasket, throttle nipple, manual, dvd,...The video and manual both say you will need the adapter plate and possibly the cable bracket. Advanced told me it was bolt and go...

            Comments about Edelbrock Performer Series Carb:

            This is the second Edelbrock carburetor I've bought in recent years. In both cases, I replaced a Holley 4150 that was not working well. I had spent a lot of time trying to get the Holley carbs to work well but could not. I swapped to the Edelbrock and immediately noticed a difference. I only had to do some minor adjustments on the idle screws and the car ran well. I swapped this carb from my car to a truck with a 351M, and it still ran well. I decided to get a second one so I wouldn't have to move the one I had back and forth.

            This is a dead simple install and definitely better than most of the other carbs out there for a the comparable price.

              I am putting this 600CFM Carb. on a SBC 350 in a 1992 Chevy Step-side. This is one nice looking and performing carb. Edelbrock is known for reliability and performance with all their product and this product is no different. It was easy to install and connect up.
