I need some people's help on what type of carburetor I should get for my 1966 Mustang. I have a Holley 600 CFM, 4 barrel on there right now.

I have a 289 V8 engine bored out to a 302.

Any ideas would be great!!

Carb. selection

We need to know things like...1) gear ratio,2)what other engine mods.(does it have a bigger cam,stock compression etc.)
If its pretty much stock, you'd be better off "hopping up" the 600. If it has stock gears and you put a bigger carb., it'll make it bog.

If your intending to run a carb and not over 400HP your present carb or a 650cfm 4160 series Holley will be adequate.
