Dual Quad vs Single big carb

Time for an engine swap in the ol girl and the engine of choice is a 496.
Currently in the works trying to get 10.2:1 and push 600hp.
Just tossin arround some ideas on how to squeeze every bit of power out of this thing while remaining with iron heads(port/polish/valves ect) -781 casting.
Costwise its about the same for a new intake/carb setup as it is to grab a dual quad.
But which one will perform better?
If there are power losses with one, how much could i expect to lose.
