Question

Is it possible to put an edelbrock 600cfm carb on a 350 that's in a 68 camaro?

It's possible, but the vent sytem is different. It vents back into the intake. Not sure why you would want to use it unless it was free, maybe. The jets may be different, but that can be changed.

yep, that's exactly why, a friend of mine bought a 750 for his boat and he just gave me the 600cfm but I have no clue how to make it work on a car. I don't think it has any vacuum or something.

Write em and ask. I got a 600 on my car and it runs good/easy to adjust. I'd probly think it's made to be 'waterproof' and they probly cost more than a street carb.

123, (wish you guys would use your names)
The Marine carb will work just fine. It has some safety related features, such as the bowl vents, and a provision for a "puke" tube from the fuel pump, but otherwise is basically the same as a "car" carburetor.
Hope this helps,

Question

Where can I get the vacuum advance vents and the PVC vent? And how do I hook up the different vent system?

The safety features of the marine carbs are nice. The downside is that jetting alone is not the only difference. Give Edelbrock a call and ask. I idle circuit is different also and sometimes leads to a "fat" setting.
