just hard to say without more info, dont know what heads you have, if that cam is hyd., solid, hyd. roller, roller, duration @ .050, lobe seperation, what tranny, tire diameter et. etc.
I understand what you're saying. I know what times the engine ran in my S-10, so I have an idea of what to expect out of this car.

I had just been pondering the carb size.

If the track over here ever opens for 1/4's again, I'll post slips. They cut it down to 1/8's because the end of the track was in poor shape.

Thanks for the replies.

Lonestar Just out of curiosity, what kind of times do you think I could get out of this setup (1/4).

The car is gutted and weighs about 2900 with me in it.

9" Ford 4 link with 17" MT's (DOT)

Thanks, and yes, I don't care about anything but WOT. The car is not street legal.

I was just wondering if maybe I should go to a bigger carb.

So is the double pumper. Only suggestions I can make are 1) consider getting a vacuum secondary carb and/or significantly reduce the plenum volume of the manifold with Devcon Liquid Steel.
I am not interested in bottom end, I just want the thing to scream (there is sanity to my madness).

I can raise my idle to around 1500 or so, which takes care of the instant fouling of my plugs at idle.

The question is, do you all think the 700 is the right size carburetor for my "current" set-up?

Ditching the tunnel ram is not an option. I have my reasons.

Lonestar She is built to withstand 8,000, but don't really want to go farther than 7,000-7,500.

I have been having trouble tuning this thing, and was thinking maybe the 700 was too small eben though it figures out ok in the calcs.

stepside454 700 wont be to small.What max RPM do you plan to see with it ?

Another "what carb" question

327 Chevy, .030 over, 12.73:1, 292/302, Lift .488/.510, Single 4 tunnel ram.

1985 Firebird, 3000 converter, 4.11 gears.

Do you think a 700 mech. secondary double pumper is too small?

How about if I dropped compression to 10.5:1?
