Yeah, I put one on my '66 about a month after I got it on the road. I started out with a 750 vac sec Holley and it was killing me on gas even after rejetting and adjusting. A buddy of mine has a AVS on his Duster and was telling me how happy he was with it, economy and performance. I was reluctant to buy one because I figured I would be giving up the performance of the Holley. WRONG!

I bought one and I'm very happy with it. Whole lot better on gas and I have'nt had it on the track (yet) but I honestly believe it has more power than the Holley.

Out of the box I put it on the car, hooked my vacuum gauge up and adjusted the front two adjustment screws to the highest vacuum reading and that's it. When I drove the car to Myrtle Beach I got 15.1 MPG round trip and that includes the Ocean Blvd cruise and playing a little.

I run a ZZ4/430HP small block with 370.1 gears and a 700R4.

I don't thing you can go wrong with this Carburetor.
