Its ridiculously easy to get an engine with an edelbrock to run perfectly.

1. remove carb.

2. throw it in trash bin or give it to someone you greatly dislike.

3. install a holley

Heeno not overly sure about good ones in Brisbane. I have heard good things on here about Southside Dyno at Slacks Creek, but don't have personal experience with them.
