I'd be looking for other causes for your bad fuel econ then, because if you've got a recoed one on there now and that didn't help, then swapping it for a Holly probably won't fix the problem, if anything it stands a good chance of making it worse.
Have you had the EGR system checked out to ensure it's working correctly, for example? Also if it's got a catalytic converter and that's fallen apart on the inside, it will be creating a huge exhaust restriction, causing the engine to use more power (and therefore more fuel) to push the exhuast gases out.
There are a few other things, but yeah, I'd be looking elsewhere if your webber has been recoed.
