Hello. I have a 5.3 from a truck and was thinking of purchasing the edelbrock 7118 for it and using a carb. I just wanted to know if anyone out there has done this and how they like it. Thanks for any info.

I agree keep the EFI if it is going to spend 90% of its time on the road. With EFI you can drive from sea level to 12,000ft and never worry about a carb going out of tune, running too rich or too lean.
Once set up properly you never mess with them...usually:)

I haven't ruled out the efi yet, I was just considering my options. I have the motor and computer, but have not purchased the harness yet.

You'll love the carb.

I have an LQ9 with a Comp Cam, Victor Jr Intake and a 750 DP Carb. Runs like a dream!!
