2 or 4brl.carb....?

My 67' falcon futura was springtime yellow, its candy apple red now,
It has a rebuilt 289ci. that was told to me it was bored &balanced n stuff.
It still has the original autolite 2 barrel carb. Even thou my car looks sweet,
drives well, & sounds Bad ***, Should i find a cast iron manifold,or a aluminium
one for a 480cfm street demon carb????
or leave it stock?? This car is so original,it still has the original Chaney
ford liscence plate covers from santa cruz CA.

any thoughts would be helpful, thanxz for you time

I'm from the school of "if it ain't broke, don't fix it", but unless you are trying to keep it absolutely original, putting a 4 barrel on it will do the car some good.

Keep the original parts and put them to the side, grab an Edelbrock Performer RPM and the small 480 cfm carb you suggested, and have at it. If you are squeamish about jetting and all that, call one of the carb shops up and get them to set it up for you based on the combination that you have, so get all the info on the motor's internals ( cam, compression, heads, transmission, gearing, etc. ) so that all you need to do is put it on and go. The jetting from the factory is usually all wrong anyway.
