Very pleased with the AVS 2 that I put on my 215.
Better than the Performer I had on there, even after that was set up with an AFR meter. Sharper throttle response, easier cold starting and running which does matter for a driver.
Seems to make more torque, judging by the gear it will pull up a particular hill.

The jetting had to be quite different to the Performer, as recorded here.

I would just say that without an AFR meter, you're wasting your time trying to set one up for your engine. Lesson learned from members here.

Mike Moor switched from his Edelbrock to an MSD Atomic Fi a few years ago. He had some issue that he never could quite resolve.

So, he went back to a carb, an AVS 2 650. He is much happier.
