Re: Holley Carb Tuning with AEM A/F gauge
Price point does matter, and I think in a large sense it is a selling point for fuel injection :P (we sell crappy carburetors, so you might as well buy our crappy fuel injection as it is marginally better).
The $299 special carbs that have come through here have been horrible in regards to quality control. Missdrilled holes, etc I've actually stopped accepting that work except for rare cases where I just like the person or I find their project interesting.
I regularly take a customers core of varying value and charge them $400 to completely restore, replate, blue print and test it.
I've never heard a negative comment regarding price, so obviously there are many who view the service as valuable. This wasn't meant to be a ego stroke or an advertisement, more that many people understand how critical these things are and are willing to pay for them.
Even with the care I try to attend to these carburetors, fuel pressure and ignition timing are still out of my control and I would wager are 99% of the issues that crop up, I've published guides for people, but it seems I have to reiterate the same things.
