p.s. i meant look bad as in it's going to out perform it. duh
There are 2 presumptions you are operating under that discount your sig line as "holley guru". The first is that all 600s come without center hung bowls, that is incorrect. The second is that a 750 will out perform any 600, also incorrect...especially since he didn't mention any engine size. In most cases a 600 will out perform a 750 on 302 size engines or smaller. I use the term "out perform" to describe the total driveablity and not just flat out acceleration. Unless the small engine is built to run just at higher rpms the 600 is a far better choice. I am aware of the look of the now non produced Holley with a removable top, if you reread my post I described it as an Autolite clone(4100),if you look at a 4100 Autolite you will see the similarities.
So in conclusion, mr. guru, I will say that a 750 WON'T always out perform a 600 "under almost any situation". Your comments are a one size fits all mentality that doesn't apply in the real world ...sorry. I am about to remove my 750 from my Cobra and install a 600 that I have set up, because under most conditions the 750 is TOO big. Low speed roll-on is flat unless you down shift and that's with a 6 speed gearbox. I know that the 600 will be more than enough to feed the 351W in the type driving it sees.Maybe I won't have a 180+ top end after that, it might only be 179...big deal. If I decide to run at Bonneville next year, I'll drive it out there with the 600 and install the 750 and see head to head. But on the street I'll take the 600 any day.
