Yep. Its a representation of how much the cylinders actually fill compared to their volume. A 5500 rpm engine probably is around 85% VE.
A Qjet would be a great choice. They are rated at 750 or 800, but they have secondary air doors that only open as much as the engine needs. That's why the same basic carb was installed on everything from V6s up to the Caddy 500. They're a great way of making sure you have enough carb without getting too much.
