holley 94 tri power set up

Looking for any advise on setting up a trio of 94's on a 283 Chevy. Using a Edelbrock manifold with a set of 305 heads ad a TH350 trans. Have seen alot of people use two of them on flatheads and only seen three 94's on magazine cars. I was told they flow around 200 cfm's and maybe more with some tweaking. One thing I have considered about these carbs is that I need alot of vacume for them to operate correcly if that is possible with 3 of them. I don't have a cam for my engine as that will be dictated as what it will take to make it run half way decent. I am unsure if it will run decent if I use a progressive linkage or maybe dumping all three will be better.

I've only done this once and that was with Rochesters, but it was my experience that the whole mess worked better on the street with operating off the center carb and using progressive linkage to tip the outer carbs in after half throttle on the center carb.

I personally like 2-4bbl's better and run the motor on the primaries of the rear carb, then tip in the rest of 'em at half throttle. Did that a lot growin' up.

In the real world of today's technology, the only reason to run multiple carbs is for the eyeball appeal in my opinion.
