It's guys like F-Bird88 who do their homework in here and usually give sound advice to some of us who need help on projects, myself included. Name calling shows ignorance! After reading the posts, I think I would go with the EFI unit and run regular unleaded gas! Just my opinion...

[QUOTE=ericnova72The DP can get as good a mileage as anything, if you set it up right and keep your foot out of it.[/QUOTE]

Ha Ha. I don't think he put it together to "keep his foot out of it". I was working on the mileage thing with the Vac. secondary by eliminating the squirt from the shooters from the DP and the fact that the vac. sec. will open on engine load, only as far as needed. In the end, mileage really depends on driving habits regardless of what kind of carb you have. With the big cam that's in there, how could mileage be a concern? Now that I think of it, put a 780cfm on it!

So does that mean that I would want a cam that has an operating range from 1500+ because my cruising speeds are 1500-1800 rpm?

cam size

If F-Birds right about the cam, fuel injection isn't going to be a cure all thats for sure. Maybe just stick with the dbl pumper and get serious and change the cam and then everything will fall in place better. You will be a lot happier with it in the long run, it's not exactlly a hard job. Good luck, not sure if you are running roller rockers a tall ratio, it all helps take the load off .

Would this be a good cam for my engine then?

http://www.summitracing.com/parts/EDL-2204/

Is there anyway to know much vacuum at idle this cam would make? Thats one of the most important things so my brakes will work a tad bit better. I only get 13.5-14.5 with the cam i have now at 650RPM, my brakes work, but i can only get one good pump out of them and the engine takes a while to ready the booster again.

I'd leave it the way it is and get a vacuum reservoir can for the brakes.

That wasn't my opinion but I'm no cam gurru like others on here. The last performance cam I had was a crower 280D/460L hyd. flat tappet. Nice lope but the brakes sucked. I could have worked that out but I was young and dumb back then.

if those are your specs on your engine, you need a converter no way around it...
i dont know the rest of your build/setup but you'll have to have a converter and gears.. i would say around a 3000rpm on the conservative side-3500rpm a little aggressive and something like a 3.73 to 4.30 gear..

if you have an adjustable timing light, look at your timing, i think your timing advance needs work along with the carb... off the top of my head the 46 squirter sounds quite large for a smallblock such as yours, seems like a small block like that should be around a 34 or 36... as stated previously look at your needle and seats, and also set/check your floats.. you should just have o rock the vehicle a little to get fuel to dribble out of the site level hole...

if your not familiar with the holley, go to autozone and get one of the holley tuning secrets books, and read it front to back... its a simple book with good setup tips.. explains timing along with a holley carb, a good read for sure..

ive never had to run anything except the factory accelerator pumps,pump cams on the smallblocks i've had in the past. i have used different springs for the secondaries.. when i went to big blocks is when i started using different pump cams and the 50cc accelerator pumps..
