Undercarbed using Strombergs?

I have a bone stock 460 Ford w/ Edelbrock Performer and 650 Holley on my Model T. I was thinking that two Stromberg 48s sitting on top of a 2X2 to 4BBL adapter plate would look pretty nice without getting into countless hundreds of dollars for a new setup. (they don't have a 3x2 to 4BBL adapter)

2 Stromberg 48's would give me a total of 340CFM - and according to my Carb calculator, I need to run at about 550 CFM at 80% volumetric efficiency. Would the engine be too undercarbed to run well using the two Strombergs? Or is this something I can run and just accept a dip in performance? I'm not looking for major performance (otherwise I wouldn't dump the 4BBL) - just want a more unique setup.

Thanks, as always!
