The Weber K551 is better. Better yet, spend the extra $ and get the Howell fuel Injection Kit for your 258. It works great and you will not be disappointed.

it is the k551 that im looking at i think its just the 38/38 instead of 32/36. everything i have read on it is that this adds a few extra horse than just the k551. again thats why im asking to get feed back and see if i need to spend the extra $80.

I've been hearing weber is notorious for stalling out uphill.. but I do not know perosonally. I think I'd like fuel injection..

Exactly, but better than the BBD. Unless you just want to run this on the street, better bet would be FI or Motorcraft 2100.
