Carb and Intake question

Post  94MustangBBF on November 13th 2014, 11:27 pm

94 Mustang drag car, approx 3200 lbs right now motor is stock bottom, flat tops, FRPP C460 cam, eddy rpm 95cc heads, 9.66:1 compression, eddy rpm intake and demon 850 carb. Im wanting to upgrade carb and intake this winter. I was thinking a tfs victor intake and 1050 dominator gas carb, was told that was a bit much and i need a 4150 carb because the booster signal would be weak with a dominator. Im only wanting to go bigger, and better engine from here, I dont want to upgrade the motor via more compression, cam, better cylinder head and have to get another intake and carb because they are too small. What do you all think? Im lookin at 2 choices possibly, 1050 dominator gas carb and tfs intake, or tfs 4150 style intake and a AED 950 hp carb.

1 more question i have is that current trans is stock c6 with boss hog 3500 converter, trans needs gone through this winter, manual valve body and rebuild, should i keep the converter thats in it? i Do have access to a 4500 converter, I beleive 9" converter.

Thanks for your time, Travis

carb

I would go to a Dominator "1050" and a Victor 460 for that 4500 flange carb. and I would go to a race type converter weather it is a 9" or a 8" with your manual valve body, the intake and carb will get you 20-30 more HP, the way to look at it would be remember back in the old days when everybody put a tunnel ram and 2 600 holleys on there race cars? its kinda the same thing but in one carb if that makes sense???? good luck in what ever you choose to do and have fun with it.

Good recommendation ... have the head intake ports "Victor" port matched; (the manifold ports are on CJ centers but, smaller than CJ size).

I agree with the dominator carb and the victor intake.

Hard to beat the QFX for features.

The Holley Ultra series are good too.

I know the Quick fuel carbs are new and improved but I've always used the Holley HP series and the 8896 3 circuit carb and always have had great results with them, my E-85 Dommy is a 8896-2
