Had a Holley expert come by today. He had me mount up my original carb and said it does have some issues, and a mind of it's own. He also mentioned that it has holes drilled in the butterflies. One little hole in each about an 1/8th". I think only in the secondary's. Is this stock? He tried to adjust it and it was going all squirrely. He took it with him back to Napa, CA. So now I have my original 15 miles away, and my aftermarket one in Florida being checked over by Specialty Parts Direct Carb issue checker guy. Maybe one will come back and I can drive the car in the next 10 days. Don't wanna get TOO happy yet...  Grin... D

no not stock, this was actually a tuning tip per Holley to help smooth the idle with longer duration cams vs. opening the throttle plates more having to idle at  say 1200.

So do we leave it like that for the 302? Is it a good thing to have done?... D

No, it's not - it's a Band-Aid, only necessary for use with really radical aftermarket cams; no need for it on a stock Z/28.
