Ive used 600/650/700/750/800/830/850 and currently 950 CFM
the 700s and 800s were both dog carbs compared to the others
The dual plane is wrong for your car,you should blow through the low end drive ability too fast to notice it,because the gears you have keep the rpm up and the car is light
with the single plane,better carb and far better cam,you would find that off idle is slower,but from 10 MPH the car would rev so fast and pull so hard that you would shift about 500 RPM past your redline with out even realising what just happened
If you were here I would lend you a manifold and bet you lunch and beer that you would be shocked at the difference in accelleration
Im betting 6/10s in the 1/4
