I dont know.I know that the 86 IROC-Z did 150mph stock. WITH a 190hp 305ci. An a TPI that would only rev to 4500rmp. These are GM and ROAD&TRACK numbers. I dont know if the speedo is right, I dont get stopped on the highway. I run 75-78mph. Speed limit is 70mph

I had an 88 formula with a 305 and 700R4 and the rpm at speed was the same as yours, 70 mph in 4th at 2000 rpm converter locked up with the same size tires. Rear end ratio was 2:73:1.

Idk what CFM it is, all i know is that it was off a 454 BBC from an RV. and when i rebuilt it i think it had jet size 72's in it? some where in that region.

it had a little bobble with the stock exhaust manifolds on it, but after i installed the headers its great, just keeps pulling and pulling.

I have had different carbs over the years between holley, edelbrock and barry grant. I had both good experiences and bad with all three carburetors. Nowadays I have learned to take apart your carburetor and look it over and clean it and maker sure its safe to put on.

Bottom line I prefer holley style carburetors as I feel they are easy to rebuild and have more options to fine tune them as compared to edelbrock. I like the simplicity of the edelbrock carbs to do basic tuning wise but for anything performance I like holley style hands down. Reason I say holley style is I have a proform holley style carb on my other truck and it runs excellent.

I also have a holley 1850 600 cfm carburetor on my everyday driver and one shot of gas and it fires right up and makes my 350 with my other parts run like a raped ape. Have read good things about Q jet carb but have never used one. There the best for fuel mileage from reading about them.
