Dont know much about the whole over carb issue but a friend of mine is running a 390 76 Ford with a a 600cfm holley and he told me that n e higher of carb would realy mess up his combo.... i can say all he has but its not like a "pro" or any thing ... he gets avg (when hes not acting an *** on the gas) 18 mpg and he'll hit 100mph VERY i mean VERY fast. Try selling you carb and just go with a smaller one... or start over ??

1) over cammed for what you want
2) over carburated on the primaries
3) timing curve?

400 hp from a 305 cube..... = 131 %

That ain't no street engine Forrest.

Like they said, stall speed and gears.
