New Carb for Pontiac 400

I am currently looking at updating my fuel system in a 1968 Pontiac Firebird. It currently has a Pontiac 400 with Edelbrock heads, ported and built by Jim Butler in TN, with an RPM intake. It has a hydraulic roller cam with 230 I - 236 E duration at .50 lift, and .510 Intake lift and .521 Exhaust lift. I currently have a HEI distributer, but will be upgrading to an MSD set-up soon. I have Hooker Competition headers with a 2 1/2 in exhaust. This is backed up by a Muncie M-20 wide ratio trans and currently 3.73 gear. I may be going to a 3.08 in the future. I am also planning on running a 1/2 in line with an electric pump and regulator with a return line. I am looking for everyday drive-ability plus throttle response. Not really loyal to any brand.
