inlet manifolds / carb / fuel pumps

just wondering what a good all rounder inlet manifold would be?

looking at buying a Edelbrock performer dual plane... be any good?

cam i have with the engine atm has a 475tho lift so its fairly mild

would a 750 barry grant carb be big enough?

Whats a good fuel system, mechanical or electric? a big mechanical or a holley black etc

Re: inlet manifolds / carb / fuel pumps

as mentioned in my other post, just want a good all rounder that can handle street and strip and turn the tyres at the drop of a hat

really like between 400-550hp or as close to without major mods eg stroker (which i want to do later) obviously more would be great :)

400-550Hp is a big range and how you get each is way different. 550 hp is 37% greater than 400 hp. Also, 550 hp from a 460 is venturing into territory that causes its street manners to get a bit impractical, while 550 hp from a stroker would be very practical.
