There always seems to be a flat spot with Holley's. But I found a few years ago when I put a Holley 350 and redline inlet on an X.D 6 I didn't have to hardly kick it down to get the thing going quickly.Fuel consumption improved. I would use the X.F carby / inlet.. Plenty at Pick and Pay Less.. Take a good tool box,big enough....

Don't be afraid to try something new. Remember, amateurs built the Ark...Professionals built the Titanic!

Swapping the single barrel carb for a twin will make a difference on a 250. I have a 465cmf Holly 4bbl on a worked 250 and after proper tuning on a dyno there is a hugh increase. However on a stock engine I think the standard webber from an XE or XF will work better then the Holley because it is already tunned and jetted for the 250.
