As the title says, Edelbrock makes good power but is no easier to start than my properly jetted stocker, the stocker would always start first kick cold, the Eddy takes 3-4 with alot of priming and hot they are about the same, the stocker I think I might be able to change jets by tilting the carb sideways, not sure but I definitely have to prop the tank up to adjust the Eddy, and boy does this thing drink fuel with this carb, I can hit reserve in 45 miles of hard riding...but it does act like she is running rich. I guess I need to fiddle with some more to make it worthwhile, I'm not really going to go back to stock :ride:

With my Edelbrock I average about 28 miles per gallon in the desert. I have a stage one Hotcam and that is why my mileage sucks. My buddy who has the same set up (Edelbrock carb) but stock cam averages 35 mpg in the desert. :ride:
