The Performer and Thunder Series AVS carburetors are Edelbrock's main products intended for general automotive and performance use. The primary difference between the two product lines is that Thunder Series AVS products feature adjustable valve secondaries that allow owners to quickly tune the opening rate of the carburetor's secondary intake valve.

Edelbrock carburetors with lower airflow capacities are generally intended for small-block engines displacing around 300 cubic centimeters or less, while larger carburetors with airflow capacities of 750 or 800 cubic feet per minute are designed for use with larger small-block and some big-block engine designs. Certain Thunder Series AVS carburetors are also available in versions that are designed specifically for use in off-road vehicles. While electric and manual choke versions are available for most of Edelbrock's products, it is possible to convert some manual choke models to electric chokes with the appropriate part.
