Would this system compensate for the dual Carter set up on the motor alone ?

How high do you think i need to spin a motor like this ?
Yes the holley blue is fine for the motor. When it craps out and or starts leaking
(and it will)
replace with the carter pumps. (move the fuel cell to the front too)

You will be shifting at 6800-7200rpm. The 4.10's will keep the motor from excessive rpm thru the traps. No worries. 350's like to rev.
The motor will show you what it likes.
Comp Cams will help you get the valve train right. Thats why you need to call them . A cam in this area will work very well for you in this car.
Don;t get greedy with the nitrous shot on pump gas. This car is going to GLH on a true 150HP shot on the T ram.
Step up to 110 octane unleaded to play with the big shots.
Get a spark control box and a nitrous RPM switch.
No rev limiter is required for this simple combo.
Shorter slick for N/A... taller slick for Nitrous. Keep it simple.
