If you look closely at the 2 carbs you will see that they look very much alike.  On some of the MC21XX models, you may even find a Holley stamp on the body of the carb.

So it's not that one is more reliable or "easier" then the other?  If the holley is almost the same thing from a MC2100 I shouldn't try to talk him in to using the MC2100?  I know the guy on ebay sell's the MC2100 with all the adapter stuff, will I need the same for the Holley or is it a mass produced after market adapter for the Holley?  Thanks

if it where me I'd go with the seller on the bay for everything ..... he has sold TONS of those kits.  Plus your the one footing the bill for all of this so it should be up to YOU what goes on your car.  I work in a body shop for a living and when someone tells me they want pink car i can't just paint it red because that's what i want to do.  You might be better off looking for a new mechanic who wants to be paid to build an eagle for you

In my opinion, the MC2100 carbs are easier to find, in that they are in junkyards every where.  They are much cheaper to source parts for.  I really don't think you will see much performance improvement with the Holley over the MC2100 on a 6 cylinder engine.  If you were to ask me about the difference for a V8, I would probably go Holley though.
No matter how bad YOU think it is ... it could always be WORSE!!
