Holley 2300 2bbl ?
Is the mod 2300 500 cfm a decent carb for a 4x4? It is a 350 with a mild cam, R.V cam. I had a 600 edelbbrock on it, but it is now defunct. I got a 2bbl manifold cheap, but the Holley that was on it is junk, it is an old one they do not make anymore, and the feedback from holley says it is only 310 cfm anyway. I do not want to change the manifold again so, maybe a good rochester 2bbl would be a good 2nd choice. Some of the "2G's put out 425-435 cfm, and were put on 350's from the factory. I want my power on the lo-mid range,so dont think I need to go back to the 4bbl. I have a friend who races figure 8's and derbys and swears by the 2bbl carbs, I guesse that is why I want to go this route. The new in box Holley 2300 carb is $200.00, and if it doesnt mind bouncing thru the woods I will buy it. My brother put this same carb on a 1970 Ford galaxy, with a 351 w, and it screams. I do not do extreme 4 wheeling but do like to play on the powerlines ect. The edelbrock seemed ok on the angles,and has a bad rap as an offroad carb, if this little holley is comparable it shuld suit me just fine.
I have been lurking here a while as I slowly put together a 79 shortbox, 350, new 350 trans, 205T-case from a 71, and 32in tires. I am in west Michigan, I see there are a few other "Michiganiacs" on the board as well. If any of you Chevy "guru's" have any info please sound off.......Thanks, Lumpy
