302 Carb question

hi, i have a few questions, first i would like to know if there is an aftermarket company that makes a intake manifold that can hold a blower or even an intake that holds 2 carbs, i don't know what setup would be best for more power, or should i just put a 4 barrel carb on the engine there is a 2 barrel on it right know.

second question, i would also like to know how to increase the torque, i would like to be at a stop light and when it turns green that it will be history pretty quick.

the engine is a 1980 302 Ford F150..

plenty of companies make intakes for your engine, a Edelbrock performer or the like would suit you fine, along with a 600cfm carb, if you want torque, dual carbs are out of the question, there made for high rpm use and not daily street use, especially in a stock engine like you have. a intake, carb, set of headers and low restriction dual exhaust would be the first good steps to make, then maybe add a small cam and a new timing chain. spiral core plug wires and the best tune up you can afford would help also. gears would likely be the best bang for the buck.

Check this out!

Here's my '95, when we ran a dual-carbed tunnel ram intake on it. It's a 302 stroked to 347.

A stock engine in an F-150 would be pointless to add a dual carb supercharger to. If you want to build something fast, I would start with a lighter vehicle. Keep your truck stock with a nice idle and good mileage. Wait untill you find a car. That is not to say you shouldn't add a couple go fast parts to the truck, but I wouldn't even think of supercharging. The weight of the truck will eat the benifits of supercharging.

Stick with a single carb if it is a stock engine, dual carbs are great look at my avatar it is a 289 with 2 4 barrel carbs. Yes it has a lot of torque and no it is not stock. A supercharger would be a great addition to your motor but you will be limited on the amount of boost you can run on a stock engine.
