350 question

On 84 chevy k10 with 350 that's midly built which is better:

Edelbrock performer carb with offroad needle/seat,factory quadrajet or another carb?

Holley intake or Edelbrock performer intake or another intake?


Engine is an 87 which means modifying my edelbock intake or keeping the holley intake.

Gears are 4.11,700r4,np208.

Plans are mostly street/trails but I want something that ain't gonna stall as much. I know the stock edelbrock carb stalled A LOT. I haven't installed the offroad needle and seat.

I still have the factory quadrajet.

thanks,

Re: 350 question

From what I have seen/heard the edelbrock sucks off road, offroad needle and seat doesn't help at angles either. It is actually just used in extra vibration situations.

Put the Quad on it. I have run one for years and tried all (Holly Eldelbrock Rochester) the quadrajet is the best hands down.

I'm not sure about the Qjet, but when running a Holley if use an adjustable fuel pressure regulator they work better. Just back the fuel pressure to about 2lbs when on steep angles and trails and back to 6lbs on street. Mr. Gasket has one that has a large knob for quick adjustments. Hope that helps.
