Holleys are s**t, but it is much easier to find someone who knows how to tune a holley.

Thermoquads are supposed to be the bees knees if you can get parts/tune right.

Sorry, that wasn't the point I was making...

It seems everyone thinks that Holleys are the best thing out there, but they are simply a carb that has saturated the market and therefore have good parts backup, etc.

A thermoquad had much more control over fuel and air mixtures it is like comparing a lawn mower carb with fuel injection. A holley is either tuned for performance or economy (HA) but a thermoquad can still pump out great power then cruise around using relatively little fuel (for a 351).

Just my 2c
