4 barell carby?

hi, is it possibly for a 4 barell carby to work on a ford XE? with modifcation on the manifold, because stock is 2 barell and i need more fuel going into the engine. or is there a way to big bore the stock XE carby to allow more fuel in? thanks

Hi Dan69,
If you are after some serious performace increase, then Redline make a four barrel manifold for your Ford 6. You could then go for any 4 barrel Holley that suited your hunger for power!!!
This would obviously suit changes to exhaust , cam etc...to gain full benefit.
Fuel consumption might improve due to small primary jets in the carb.

Re: 4 barell carby?

Use the smallest 4 barrel Holley you can...I think they are 460 cfm ??

Don't be afraid to try something new. Remember, amateurs built the Ark...Professionals built the Titanic!
