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.

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 performer series carb replaced my holley which I also bought new and just could not get it right. Drove with the holly for 2 years. This edelbrock only required a little adjusting on the idle screw and done. My father only runs edelbrocks so I thought I would give it a chance and I am hooked! car is a 67 Camaro and engine is a GMPP 350 HO with the L31 vortec heads.

    I have done many carburetor replacements over the years but this is my first Edelbrock. This is the best carburetor replacement I have ever experianced. It ran perfectly right out of the box and performed exactly the way the vidieos showed that it would.

              Happy to assist you Scott! This type of spark plug has many applications. If you can provide us with a year make model and engine size we can give you more information. You can also refer to a repair manual or a certified mechanic. The general rule of thumb for spark plug installation is thread it in by hand as a far as possible then with your ratchet give it about a quarter to a half of a turn. Keep in mind that is the general rule, for your application it may be slightly different.

              A:

              I'm happy to help, Gary! This Edelbrock Performer Series Carburetor (Part No. 1406) is designed for small-block and small displacement big-block engines at stock to Performer level. Edelbrock recommends matching these carburetors to an Edelbrock Performer or Performer EPS manifold or other brands with a similar design. This is a square bore 600 cfm, 4-bbl carburetor. This carburetor is calibrated 2% leaner than Part No. 1405 and includes both timed and full vacuum port for ignition advance.

              The included metering jets are: primary - .098, secondary - .095; metering rods - .075 x .047; step up spring - yellow (4" Hg). If needed, use carb studs Part No. 8008 or 8024.

              To mount this carburetor to a spread bore manifold, you may utilize Edelbrock Performer Series Carb Adapter (Part No. 2696). Keep in mind that Edelbrock carburetors will typically perform best when used with a matching intake manifold.
