If you know how to tune Holley's you will have no problem with them. I have a Holley 500 CFM 2V i got from a member here and i rebuilt it and my bone stock 360 runs like a top. It is like night and day. I also rebuilt the Autolite which is an easy rebuild but the Holley is just as easy to rebuild and runs so much better. I'd go with the Holley.
Then you're doing something wrong. My Holley's run like clockwork. I never have to adjust them. Autolites are usually too lean and they don't make larger jets for them. To richen them up you have to drill them out. You don't have to like them. Johnnys147 was asking for advice on 350 or 500 CFM and we assumed he was talking about 2Vs. I think the Autolites are 350 CFM and they're too lean. My 500 2V Holley fixed all the problems. To each his own.Redcap wrote:
