90% sure NO. Unless it’s made for Chrysler specifically.

You'll need the throttle adapter and be losing the choke, you'll either be going electric or manual choke. If you've got some carburetor skills, you can follow along here:

Yep, throttle adapter, then transfer your carb stud to it. Bingo, you are done. Got one on my 71 RR and 71 GTX.

i think i'd work with the stock avs before i blew money on the edelbrock. the only real issue with the stock carbs is the lean idle/low speed circuit. the automatic transmission carbs have a leaner idle jet than the manuals. just set the carb up for the manual idle jet and make sure the mixture screws at the base of the carb are useable, .i prefer the edelbrock accelerator pumps to the old stock leathers, and i use edelbrock squirters but that's not a must. whole lot cheaper to do this than $400.

I did it on my 71 Charger R/T. I bought the throttle adapter and the AVS2 with electric choke. The car never ran so good and my low rpm hesitation went away.

You need to clarify what you mean when you say idle jet. Idle is controlled by the idle mixture screw not a jet. Do you mean the primary jets?

all carter afb's and their clones have an idle jet just like holleys have one. it's the small brass tube, next to the larger emulsion tube, that fits in the well. very simple. the edelbrock pamphlet that comes with the carbs shows it.
