I,ve got a 331" sbc in my '32, Edelbrock alum heads, XE262H cam and a 650 Vac. sec Holley. Not really too big, but you could easily get away with a Holley Street Avenger 570 Vac sec carb. The XE 268 may be a little stout but it will sure sound good, all depends on how streetable you want it to be. Nevertheless, run a Vac. Sec. carb on the street, good luck.

Stick vacuum secondary with the automatic. We'd go with a 575 on your combination.

Hay steve still have bike 2001 head quarters powered roadking. ordered a 575 speed deamon. hope it will work did not think a 268 was that big for a 327. with such a light car I figured it would work out good. I will find out. time will tell.
