I have a manifold and holley 4 barrel. Holley needs serious work but could be brought back to life or junked or resold.

If you're thinking 2 choke Weber, they do not work as well as twin SUs on the RV8, but if you are stuck on the idea look for a Buick 215 inlet manifold.

Irony's 4bbl setup is a much better option..

In my opinion and quite a few others is the Edelbrock/weber 500 1404 carb is the best for these engines. It is dead easy to install and maintain. Thats what I have on mine and it works a treat. Out of the box they tend to run a little rich but that is easily solved.

If I was building my car again I would definitely go for Megasquirt or some other Fuel Injection but I think that completely depends on preference.

When it comes to feeling I believe most people fall into three categories. 1. Don't care 2. Fuel injection (Carbs are simply witchcraft) 3. Carbs (fuel injection and computers are witchcraft).

The manifold I have is perfect for a Holley 360 or the Weber/Edelbrock 500. I would resell the holley and get a weber.
