While you may end up with better numbers with the Victor You do not have enough cam to utilze it's potential.it is also a poor choice for a street driven car. You will make better numbers with the Air Gap, Performer RPM or Stealth intake and a good Holley Carb. It will crush the Victor in Torque and be right with it in Horsepower and have better driveability.I agree with your points Teyerdhal, I've never been one to do the easy thing and these carbs are a challenge thats for sure.
!I have a Victor Jr. and Holley carb that we are going to install next week and run. Right now the engine is off of the dyno so they can run other engines while we look for issues. Also I'm going to leak the engine down to make sure the rings seated.
Thanks for your help.
BTW, I'm not giving up on the Webers!
we built a 331 for a customers 65 shelby replica two years ago... bought webers from weber usa and ran 3 days on dyno before calling ingelese... sent them the intake carbs and 1200 bucks later they were redone with new booster sleeves ect... we were told we never would have gotten it as they are sent... afr heads and mild hydraulic roller went 415 hp at 5800 after that... redline sells webers for 2 grand and inglese for 3 grand... now i get it... linkage and low speed adjustment is everything on those... they redid that also ... they are a pain but man... nothin sounds as cool at 6 grand on the dyno... makes the hair on the back of the neck stand up.....
Edel carb vs Webers !!! A Holley and a good intake would get the same 30 hp. the Webers do have the wow and cool factor . 6K rpm is'nt a lot of rpmps... i foud the dyno sheets from the same motor with 750 ede thunder carb and performer air gap... 386 hp ... so 30 hp for the webers... they used to say 40 years ago... its not magic its that they are 2300 cfm total
