Response to Tunnel Ram

Note that the Holley 390s are vacuum secondary and more forgiving. The Holley 450 list 9776 is a mechanical secondary carb with no back shooters. The 390s would be easier IMHO to tune on the street. If I was going for hot street/strip I'd use a pair of real 650DPs and skip right over the 450s. The other thing I'd watch for is idle circuit tuning - you'll have two idle circuits, both engineered to be the only idle circuit on the motor. I'd recommend a wide band tuning tool to help dial it in if you're serious.
