Out of all the carb posts I've read, I haven't heard of a single person who has gotten a 750 Edelbrock to work. Something with that carb just doesn't work right.

Well I had a reply on my email from a member on another forum..... and he said that both Eddy and Street Demon are not too good.  Recommended a Proform carb...........I looked but they are about twice as expensive as the others.........any thoughts on that carb?

Lots of Edelbrock carbs are sold.  I can't believe the entire line is junk.  I've just never heard anything good about the 750 version.  I've got a 650 Thunder series so I hope I don't have major problems with it.  The thunder series are adjustable.  Edelbrock has a version that is not.  I'd probably stay away from that one.  I'm drawing a blank at the moment on what they call that series.

 I had an eddy 750 0n my old 440,approx 500hp.I could tell there was more power waiting to be unleashed.I put a holley 850,tuned it and I swear i gained a min 50hp and the throttle response was insane.My current 512 stroker has duel eddy 600's and I hate them for tuning. I am going efi next.

I took off an Edelbrock and installed a Street Demon. Man what a difference!  I'm sold on the brand and plan to use another one on my next build.
