i was at my local speed shop the other day. i was looking at geardrives (by the way i got a pete jackson, quiet) and i noticed the edelbrock carbs. so looking at the RPM carbs i see they only have a 600 and 750 cfm. my dad and i talked to the guy and he said that the 750 would be too much for my small block. and a 600 should be just right. i have a 625 or 650 q jet on my outdated holley street dominator single plane intake. so i figured i would buy a performer rpm manafold along with the carb. but im still stumped if i should get a 750 manual or electric choke carb for my car. i know guys who run 750 holley double pumpers. holley makes 600, 650, 700, 750, and 800 cfm carbs why does edelbrock only make 600 and 750? i didnt want a holley, my dad hates them, he has always been happy with carter carbs. any ideas? and is the performer rpm manafold a good low end power builder? my intake and carb suck! my motor has 1.94 heads, 10.5:1 compression, trw forged pistons, .30 over, pink rods, crower duel pattern cam (its pretty big and lumpy,)steal crank... all the good stuff.
