What carburetor is everyone using for their cars? I have a 351 Cleveland  2v, fmx, 3.00rear. 

Upgrading to RV cam and 4 barrel carb and intake. My research has found Edelbrock is relaible for a street car. Drag race guys love their Holleys.

 

Thanks guys.

+1 on the Summit. Unless you like tuning and re-tuning and rebuilding carburetors, then go for the Edelbrock.

And, as the resident Edelbrock Fan (nut, weirdo, whatever), I love my Performer 1406, and my car is almost exactly as your specs describe: 351C-2V with a mid-range cam & roller 'everything,' AOD (same gears as FMX but w/OD), and 3.00 rear end. 

 

I don't know what's wrong with all these other guys.   :whistling:

My 1971 sports roof 351C is running the Edelbrock Performer Plus Cam and Performer Plus 2v cylinder head intake with Holley 750 - 4v carburetor . I did upgrade the 2v heads rocker arm and fulcrums to the 4v version.

I am with Mister 4x4 on the roller, ie, Roller Rockers!

Mustang 7173 that is the camshaft that I'm going to get. I would love to hear yours running at idle. Only one on YouTube and was a bad video. Thanks

Hello cougarnutct,

 

It will take me few days to record. Also, I have a Mallory Unlite and a Mallory CDI box. This may skew the sound a bit.

Thanks,

Well, I just so happen to have a video of mine handy.  ;)

 

My engine build list is posted in My Garage (link before my sig), but suffice to say:

  • 351C-2V
  • Edelbrock Performer 2740 intake, 1406 carb
  • CompCams 274/274 @.566" cams, Hi-Energy Roller "Everything" (lifters, rockers, push-rods, etc.)
  • Hooker Competition ceramic-coated headers
  • Pypes 2.5" stainless exhaust w/X-pipe and Pypes Street Pro mufflers 

My pal Dave took this back in Sept to share with his buddies.  Enjoy!

I am running a 2v engine with a similar cam. Headers and electronic ignition performer intake. I run the Holley. Runs great. May need some tuning because it seems rich. But have not had it out enough.
