On a street car 750-850 the 750 will give a little less high rp[m horsepower but the 750 will give better low end response and easier to tune and usually better on gas. Not a pro just an opinion. PS Burning rubber is expensive these days hooking up is more fun as far as adrenalin goes. Get drag radials normal tires the temper of the rubber will change after the first burn out and never be the same. I learned that the hard way.

Hard to beat a Holley 3310 vac secondary (750 cfm). Very tunable and easy to work with carb.

Excellent idea but it takes out the fun of screwing it up first and then going onto the forums and asking how to tune it, lol.
