I currently have a stock Rochester 2-bbl with thermostatic (heat) choke on my stock 307 (1969 camaro)...
I want to install a polished 4-bbl intake, & picked up a polished, Cyclone Performer with a Rochester quadrajet profile.

I'd like to get an Edelbrock carb (with an electric choke setup), but don't want to over-fuel the damn thing.

Would someone recommend the 600 cfm or 650cfm model? What carb would best give me durability
(over "performance") and can someone recommend
a particular Edelbrock model? Would this necessitate another linkage setup? Thanks guys.

Edelbrock #1406. 600 cfm, square flange, electric choke.

Use with the Performer EPS manifold # 27012 (permastar finish -- not polished but a slick silver powder coating)

Not sure about linkage -- but if its not an exact fit it should be fairly easy to adapt your existing to the new carb. You might need to redo your fuel line too.

PS. I am assuming that you do NOT have an EGR . . . not sure when they started that biz in Califormia. If you have an EGR and need to keep it the manifold and carb PN will change.

Salerno your post sounds like you already have the manifold?If it is a spreadbore intake just use a qjet.I ran a performer and qjet on my 69 Chevelle with a 307 and a glide and it ran real good.

Yes, I already have the Cyclone intake (see E-Bay item #7948669256) which will take the Quadrajet; it has the quadrajet . But the quad is a 750cfm, and this may be too much for the 307.... I'd hate to buy a quadrajet @ $260-300 and have to much carb for the 307... But I know what you're saying: those primaries are pretty small and itmay be okay for use... Can someone review the Cyclone intake & maybe make a recommendation. Again, looking for consistency over power...

With the air valve secondary the qjet works well on all size engines.Either carb. will work on that intake it has both bolt patterns.

The Q-jet will work fine on your 307. The small primaries are what makes the Q-jet good for a wide variety of different size motors. GM used it on everything from the 500 cid Caddy's down to the little 262 as I recall.

I didn't see you already had the manifold and carb already . . . just use what you already have
