I have picked up a 1150 cfm Holley dominator that was on boat engine. What do I need to do to make it work on my drag racing engine?

IF it is an actual Marine carburetor then change the vent tubes.

Looking to make the carb is 1150, but there is no model number or date number.
On the base says 12R-11259-3B. I just want to know the “true” cfm

With a 1050 the Venturi are 1.690" and with an 1150 the Venturi are 1.812" ... the throttle bores are the same size.
