2X4 Carb Setup

Post  jmf32 on July 23rd 2012, 3:19 am

Hi,
I currently have a moderate build 466 in a 69 Fairlane street car. 567 lift solid cam,slightly raised pistons, dove heads.
The 466 engine has an older type Torker intake and an edelbrock 750 carb
The engine (and car) is.. it is my old drag race car now converted to street. it is now a 4 speed car
I recently purchased an aluminum low rise 2X4 intake for it and a pair of used edelbrock 600 carbs.
It is not the blue thunder intake. the one i bought has an open plenum below the carbs shared by 8 very short runners. i will take a picture of it as i do not believe there is a name on it
I also bought a linkage kit to hook it all up
my plan is to take the 750 off, try each 600 one at a time on the torker intake to make sure that they are in good working order since they are used
Does anyone have any tips as to where to start with the jetting before i bolt this 2X4 up to try?
i am guessing that my ignition timing will pretty much remain the same and i do have a fuel regulator set at 5 1/2 lbs of pressure to start with
Any tips at all would be greatly appreciated as I am new to running a 2X4 carb setup.
Thank You in advance

Does your intake look like this one?

THAT manifold was just released to the public a couple months ago.

i originally looked for a blue thunder 2X4 but the ones that i found were alot more expensive.
the 600 edelbrocks i bought very cheap since not too many guys like them.
the runners are short but the plenum is similar to the weiand stealth.

Not trying to insult you....... But I think I would have paid the few extra dollars for the BT intake.

I'm thinking the one you have might be a bear to tune and its opposite of what I would want in a manifold. The short runners are probably going to kill any low end. It doesn't appear that much thought or engineering went into that part.

i am thinking that it may suffer on lowend also.
i was just looking for a baseline to start
i also thought that putting a torker in place of the stealth would hurt lowend
but surprisingly, it worked out. any low end stumbles were taken out by adjusting the the carb
the torker showed no signs of bottom end loss. if there were any. i did not notice them

I'd just check the eddy carbs to make sure the have the factory tune and start from there.

The torker vs weiand, the stealth is a high rpmdual plane with a lot of volumn, the torker is a relatively small volumn low single plane.

So that would be the Pro-comp intake?

Be sure to let us know how it works out for you. I am sure plenty of people would like to know.
