now no matter what I think(650cfm) his post on that thread and him telling you you'll get to your goals with a 550cfm tbi.. well.
now if it was a 550 throttle body dry.. no fuel then maybe.. squeak by.. and thats a big if..
Actaully, you're the one that brought up the 750, if it was a good quality carb I may have went a little bigger. The thing you don't seem to get is that there's a huge difference between buying a 750 over a 650 carb (both will run you over $300, and the difference in price can be negligible), or trying to spend a couple hours time smoothing out a throttle body to flow about 600-650cfm that you have a total of $15 in.
I know its easy to throw around $1,000+ when its someone else's money but I was offering a very sound and much cheaper alternative to zildjian, after all we're not all millionaires.
