RE: Carb Jetting

I know you were asking about carb jetting but after looking at your engine specs I think you should go in another direction. If the # of your head is 367450, my books show that is off a 75-76 262 ci. It is for a very small smog engine, the port volumes are so small they will never move enough air to take advantage of the cam you picked. That cam runs from 1600-6000 rpm with a healthy duration, cyl heads and cam is where you want to spend the money for performance. Those heads were designed for a very small bore, I assume you are building a 350, so those chambers will over hang in a 4.00 or 4.030 bore. Also since you have a manual trans, forget the 4160--get a 650 or 750 DP which will make more power, but I would replace those heads if it was possible.
