I think the boosters, metering blocks, etc etc would matter more than cfm.

And engine specs, cam, comp, heads etc would also help in deciding.

We ran two 1050's worked over by Patrick James at Pro Systems on our A460 head 557" engine. However, our heads weren't stock, they were fully worked and we were running a lot larger camshaft. At that time, he didn't recommend the 1150's that we had. You might want to call someone like Patrick and get his input...
