Needs a smaller carb, too. 650 is right for a stock-headed 350 and a flat tappet hydraulic cam. You'll get more out of a good "competition" type 650 than a street DP 750.

The cam is the "upper end" of the intake's capability. If you want more revs and less low-end, use Performer RPM and the 750. It's a bit of a miss-match with small valves and low comression. I like the Perfomer/650 combo better. More head work would wake it up with the "bigger" parts.

FWIW
