    sorry I though my last post was viewed. I am still trying to decide on the carb. The Holley tech line is telling me to go with a 750 DP and at the same time the Holley Carb selector on the site goes with the 850 dp. The cfm formula also points to a 750 series. So now I am considering the 750 dp instead.
    this is the crate zz502 with 508 hsp. I have the 6 speed tremec and 300 gear 9 inch ford. Its a street car, but I want good performance with the economy when I need it. I only have a 15 gallon tank and would like to do road trips with it. Right now with the 870 avenger its running a little rich and mostly on the primaries even at wot. so that's where I am now, and at $600 a pop I want to try to get it right the first time.

    no track.
    around here we have some pretty fast street cars. I just want to be able to keep up
    for instance back in 2012 this guy had taken his new Camaro to new York someplace and was braging that he had just spent 10 grand on the engine. this was at every car show or cruise in the same bull****.
    one day it just so happened we were leaving at the same time. him in front and me behind. he looked in the mirrow saw me and nailed it. so did I. I was shoving him. actually I wanted to tap his rear bumper but couldn't . he in return couldn't leave me. that ended his braging right there. how fast? when I glanced down the speedometer needle was at the right turn signal indicator. maybe 140.
    that's what I like to do
    I am going to my motor head friend tomorrow and show him the cam you showed me along with straubs and ask him what he thinks,
    I just hate the thought of pulling the engine and undoing everything
    yep pull it.
    it has a 7 quart pan that has about .010 clearance between it the crosmber

    I was trying to build on what you were saying, not point any imperfections.

    This kid reminds alot of my son, in that he is blindly following someone else's info/knowledge. Trying to get him to do more than get a recipe for an engine build and make him THINK was my goal.

    If ever I appear to YOU that I'm out in left field, appearing condescending, being arrogant, or am just flat out wrong, then never hesitate to straighten me out - I WILL TAKE NO OFFENSE. I am by no means an expert, but I feel that I know what I know and I realize that I'm wrong at times.
