gas mileage

since i last logged in i've been busy and the last two things i've added to my chevy was a new frontend and a new v8 motor. i am planning on putting a 3 carb intake on it, but only running one carb and the other two are just for looks. my question is what type of carb to use. the two that i have to choose from are the rochester 2gc and the holley 94 and they are powering a chevy 350, can anyone help?

What style of build on the chevy? If old school 40's-50's you should do old carbs. Late 50's & up build, I'd go with rochesters. AND, by all means, run all 3. There is no point in not running them all. They are always set up progressive and run mostly on one. I ran them back in the late 60s and again in the 90s. They work fine and are not a pain to set up.

Check the manifold bases for bolt patterns(3 &/or/4 bolt) as well as the size of the rochesters pattern. Rochesters come in 2 sizes. There are vendors who can sell you parts to make a regular carb into an "outboard" tripower carb.

You can never have too many carbs
