if your talking for a crossflow ive been down that road, and strongly advised against it.. ive been told that driveability becomes an issue and that the webber is a very good cabd once tuned..

i also had a holley described to me as an adjustable fuel leak..

not saying dont do it,, but i have been talked out of it..

I like your description. A friend has a 650 holley on a 350 chev. And im suprised he doesnt achieve hydraulic lockup. It uses so much fuel, its just like a 6 mm hose sitting open all the time.It squirts in like nothing else :twisted: :P

The holley 350cfm fitted with a aftermart manifold works well only if the rest of the x/flow mtr has had work. On a standed mtr your best with the webber set up mainly for fuel consumption & defect notices for ADR breaches.

Had a manual TE cortina with cain manifold & holley 350, head, cam, extractors, modified electronic distributor & 3.9 gears & it ran mid to high 14's over the 1/4 mile.

on a x-flow i have, it has a redline intake with a 350 holley on it, and it hammers, but it also has a yella terra head, and a nice cam... unsure what it would be like on a stocker,

i know on my XF i had kept the webber on it and just went for a new cam/lifters and gave it a good tune, and it was enough fun for what it was... no where near as good as the one with the yella terra head, but it did good burnouts, LOL
with the cam i had in it i would have put the holley on if i had have been motivated enough though... (and if i had an intake for an alloy head)
