Assuming you have a heavy car or an auto trans I'd go with a Vacuum Secondary carb- NOT a double pumper.

Here's a good Vac secondary carb: Demon Carburetion Speed Demon Carburetors 1563010VE - SummitRacing.com

A 750HP double pumper will work the best. You can build one using any 650-700-750 DP and the holley or proform HP body upgrade kit. This is the carb you need.

750 double pumper would be an excellent choice.

Ive used 600 double pumper/750 and 850 on my old camaro and also used 2X750 carters on a 355 street car.The worst was the 600 double pumper,the 750 was the easiest drive,it just works at every RPM

Is the 750hp double pumper worth the extra money or can I get the regular double pumper 750

I'll probally never use anything else again. These are basically made for your combo. All I had to do was adjust idle and go. Jetted perfect out of the box.
