If it's just a cruiser and it works well I'd keep the 2bbl. Just make sure its properly tuned for your combo- a purely stock carb will not be tuned right.
i will be getting long tube headers and exhaust later on thats for sure stock manifolds are borring lol and hold back engine potential and just go with the edelbrock 600carb instead of the 2 barrel
