What do you intend to do with the car? Dedicated drag racer or weekend cruiser, or somewhere in between?

Personally, I like Edelbrock because my car is a weekend/fair weather cruiser, but I want to be able to stomp on the peddle and have it respond when I want it too.

Holly will do that too, but Eddys are simpler

As Cz said the cfm ...is equal to rpm. If you intend to cruise around ...stock 550 will do. if you have a little cam 650.... if you go beastiality ...750. Example my car is set up to go bad azz but i have a 750... she starves at one end but 0 to 80 she slurps up all it will feed her. If you are stock a 550 will give you some top end and a little umph at the beginning without being over carbed.

Helpful?

If she is stock..I would get a 650 holley atleast....Stock carb for your HO is a 715 or 716 cfm carb if i remmeber right....I put a 600cfm eldelbrock on my stock 351 4v...and noticed a small loss in power...but it seemed to work just fine overall...It just did not have the snap my old 4300d did.

Going for weekend cruiser, but hit the gas every now and then. Engine does have a different cam and I was thinking of going with 750 carb.

You can get a factory refreshed one for 250 bucks from ebay...Guy has good feed back too.,,Make sure you get a holley jetting kit if you get a holley....A holley needs to be tuned in a little with a jet kit..not hard to use...kit is like 50 bucks for every jet made for a holley..and is needed.

I got a vac version for my car..my build will be pushing about 425 to the fly wheel.

Thunder series mentioned above are some good carbs...Was thinkin about getting one my self...takes alot less tuning than a holley...But holley is the king of racing....you can tune them in a little sharper to your needs...Give and take with every brand..lol
