What issues is the carter giving you, or what do you hope to gain from the new carb?

Clean the inside of metering tubes or pickup tubes cant recall what they are called.. Makes a big difference if you have not done that. I looked into the holley avenger ones, but $$$.

I've been through an Edelbrock, not too proud of the Holley I have now, but have heard good things about Rochester Quadrajets...anyone viewing had success with one?

Damn, you sound like me except the order is different. I had a Quadrajunk, then a Holly and the Edlebrock I have has been the best so far. The Qjet is a good carb. They can give you good power and economy if you get one set up right. I think one key is to get one off a engine of similar displacement so that the set up is close to start with. Good luck.

2100 is easier to tune.

I have a 4-barrle Edelbrock on my 304 and i am a fan of it, i think it is a pretty good carb and i am happy with my performance and im content enough with my mpgs... well they suck but thats standard and i dont think it hurt them any
