Re: Quick Fuel 780 vs 780 Holly List 4053 or 4555
A 780 will be fine for a mild 350, been done for a long time.
The deal with most carbs-whether a q-jet, Holley, or Thermoquad-is how it is set up and tuned.
Almost never does a carb come out of the box and perform optimally.
As for the Quick Fuel I have been hearing rave reviews about them from racers. These are racers that have to use the 780 as a replacement for the original Holley 780 in stock type classes. The guys at QF, so I have been told, used to work at Holley. And, I was recently informed, that QF has been bought by a corporate entity that owns other perf parts companies. I don't know if that is true or not-just heard it this past weekend from someone at PRI.
