I've ran edelbrock, ford, holley, and qft. Edelbrock is easy to tune, and a great all around driving carb; 1406 is a good size for your app. Ford 4100 1.08 is a great carb, also good drivability. I took the dive into holley some time back and can say if you read and understand how to set them up, they are hands down better then 4100 and edel. QFT takes holley to the next level for performance tuning, with more features and tunibility. So, the question is how much do you want to work? I enjoy tuning a carb, but it takes time, and some reading. If you want a bolt on, go with edel 1406, auto choke and you should be set. If you want to learn, start with a holley 4150, center hung bowls, 600 cfm, vacuum sec's, and learn how to tune it. You'll be very happy.
