For a 351 @5500rpm max with mild modifications, it listed carbs between 570 and 600 cfm. This does not take into account the 351C 4V's massive valves and ports. I was also looking at the Summit brand. 

Reading the latest post from Spike and others and if cost is a consideration, the Summit brand would probably be top of the list. I forget which of the Australian members said he had the summit and was very happy with it.

Holley bought QF a few years ago along with MSD and a good portion of the hot rod parts industry. In turn, Holley is owned by Sentinel Capital. That is why everything is priced the same no matter where you buy it. In the old days we called that price fixing. Chuck

I didn’t know that either. I bought a Quick Fuel carb last year and I really like it. It’s very responsive and with the Blue Thunder intake on my newly built motor it’s really running great. Hopefully they don’t turn theses into crap, but don’t hold your breath. I guess theses summit carbs are looking like the way to go.
