Edelbrock carbs on my tunnel ram

Post  57custom on April 7th 2013, 1:13 pm

I have been building a 466 what I call a nostalgia engine for my 3 fairlane tudor. I have a weiand tunnel ram on it along with a solid Iskendarian cam and iron CJ heads Thats the basics. I have 2 600 holleys that I modified for mechanical secondary's. I got the wild idea to put a pair of 750 polished Edelbrock carbs on it for the look and hopefully to make decent power. In you guys opinion are these carbs going to cost me a lot of power over the holleys. Remember these are 600 home modified holleys with metering plates in the rear of both carbs. Without spray I am hoping it will at least approach 600 hp. I did do a lot of grinding on the intake as shown on a post from quite a while ago that I saved so it does look good.

extra air should pick-up some power IMO, 2 600 is way to small for a 460 and a TR, but it would be very drivable.

Not sure on a tunnel ram but on my old 351c I ran single carb 600 Holley put a eddy 750 and lost power this was a street engine I went with a holley 750dp later on and man what a different from the eddy and a holley the same cfms me I would stay with the holley.

I've used 2 Edelbrock 750's for nearly a decade on a 871 blown 460 and they have worked fantastic. Edelbrock carbs don't leak, and hold their tune. I have found removing their choke plates helps flow, you just have to compensate for it in cold weather. A friend has a pair of them (750's) on a Weiand tunnel ram in his 460 jet boat and they run far better than the pair of Holley 600's he had on it.

I have a pair of 750 Carters and a Wieand tunnel ram, on a BBF. The car runs great. Real responsive without a lot of tuning even.
