A 750DP on a 330hp-400hp 5.7 with a dual plane intake (performer rpm) is easy to tune and will make max power to boot.
Is a 650 cfm carb to big for a 350?
If you’re expecting a maximum of 6,500 rpm, you’re going to need a 650- to 700-cfm carburetor. These sizing numbers are only the beginning of carburetor selection—a baseline. A 600-cfm carburetor may perform quite well on a stock 350 Chevy.
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.
How do I know if my carburetor is rich or lean?
Q: How Do You Tell if a Carburetor Is Rich or Lean? A: One way to tell for sure is by “reading” the spark plugs. If the plug tip is white, the mixture is lean. If it’s brown or black, it’s rich.
Does a bigger carburetor mean more power?
The answer is no, not really. The amount of fuel that’s sucked into the carburetor is controlled by the carburetor jets. Installing a bigger carb is simply going to improve the power potential of your bike. You still have other things to worry about like improving air intake, exhaust flows and jets.

How much horsepower will a 950 cfm carb support?
Although way too small according to the CFM calculations presented earlier, a 950 Ultra HP can pass enough air to support more than 800 hp from a street/strip 572. If you do the math in terms of the required CFM, these carbs look far too small to be able to allow the production of such big horsepower numbers.
How do you increase CFM on a carburetor?
In just a few minutes working with a file, you can augment this mod by applying a radius to the top edges of the choke horn. This increases the flow about 3 to 5 more cfm. You may see carbs that have been reworked for a higher performance by milling off the choke horn.
How does a double pumper carb work?
