Edelbrock 1406 and C6 behind 351C-2V
This is my same project for next weekend. Got the Edelbrock 2750 and the 1406 and a new air cleaner. Should be fun.

73 H Code Sportsroof 351C 2V
The 1406 is a great carb, very smooth running and excellent throttle response on my 2V cleveland. Mine only required basic tuning to get it running well.

I have a question about the 1406 in your cars, Have you changed any springs or needles ? Im into tunning my 1406 at the moment. Il probably go with the Sniper Efi in a few months.

I have not.
One thing to check for  with the Edelbrock. My car has a 351-2 with Edelbrock 1406 and performer intake. When I bought it it was running WAY to rich - hard to start when hot like it was flooded and blew black smoke out of exhaust when hard on it, and constant gas smell. Edelbrock says this carb is designed for 6-6.5 Lbs fuel pressure. When I checked my fuel pump was putting out 8.5 lbs, basically overpowering the carb. Had to install a regulator to solve the problem. Car runs fine now. I think I have it a little on the lean side now but at least its tuneable now.
I started out of the box with a Holley electric fuel pump and Mr. Gasket fuel pressure regulator, set up to around 5.5 psi.  Mine's still running like a champ - fire right up every time.

It does hesitate ever so slightly when I start it after the engine's warm, but I'm thinking that's because the starter might be heat-soaked, being that close to the header.  It's not that big of a deal, so I haven't addressed the idea of making a heat shield, or going with a hi-torque mini-starter, or something else.
