Help please!!! Is a 1050 Dominator too big of a carb for a mild 466?? If not, what brand would be better choice, Quick Fuel or Holley?? Any particular part number. Any help is appreciated!

Drag car only, no street use.

I ran an 1150 Holley on top of my 466 in a mud drag truck and it did ok. the trick is getting everything else to work together with it. Wink

Meaning you need to work out the whole build package to work together. From block prep, rotating assembly, heads/valve train, oiling system, intake, and exhaust. It's a whole package that needs to work together and you can't just throw parts together and expect success. My original build is here:

Understood, the motor I have now came from another car, not sure of all the particulars of it, just its a mild .030 over 460. It's equipped with a performer rpm manifold and a 950 alky carb right now with iron heads, and the 2in hooker swap headers. The alcohol is dificult to deal with while its so cold. Just thinking of going to a gas carb. I'm planning on a 521 or 545 build in the near future. Thinking of the Mafia intake and a 1050 and transfering it to the new motor when completed. Just wanted to see if that the change would be too much for what I have right now.
