What carb for 360

I was thinking about purchasing a Holley 500cfm 2-barrel for my 360 because it has a 2-barrel intake, or would it be better to buy a 4-barrel intake from the junkyard and put a double-pumper on it. I was thinking about putting a hotter cam in it but heard i would need new rocker arms or something. Just wondering, any info would be appreciated.

Re: What carb for 360

I'm interested to see peoples responses here because i'm looking at getting a performer manifold/4bbl carby and bigger cam for my 390.

But at this stage i'm in the same boat as you.... not sure what's the best way to go!

Re: What carb for 360

In my educational background experience, I have an Associate's Degree in Automotive Technology, if you have a "High Mileage" engine and are contemplating upgrading the camshaft to a higher performance one, you can eventually cause bottom end stress which in turn can cause your piston rings to wear faster causing loss of compression as well as oil consumption. I dont know if you are referring to a lower mileage one but maybe this is good info for you. As for your fuel delivery question, I personally would go with the 4bbl intake and carb, depending on how hot the cam you want to use is, I would recommend a 700cfm carb. Your choice of brand though. This should let your big block breathe a little better as well as shaving a few pounds off your engine by using an aftermarket aluminum intake, unless of course you have access to a stock one.

later
