How do I know what CFM my carburetor is?

How do I choose a carburetor size?
To arrive at the most appropriate carburetor choice, there’s a basic formula: engine displacement multiplied by maximum rpm divided by 3,456. For example: a typical 355ci small-block—a 0.030-over rebuild—with a 6,000-rpm max engine speed would work well with a 616-cfm carb ((355 x 6,000) 3,456 = 616.32).
What happens if your carburetor is too big?
If the barrels are too big, the loss of air velocity means the cylinder will not fill to its full capacity. An engine with a carb that is too big will put out less Torque and Horsepower. It will be difficult to drive due to poor low-end torque. If you drag race your car, an oversized carb will produce slow 60 ft.
