1050 is to big IMO a 4150 850-950 would be better.

I agree with David....850 should et better for 1/8 mile but a 1050 would make better power in the 1/4...... :mrgreen:

We ran a 1050 on a dish piston, iron vortec head 406 and was .10 faster than an 800. However, getting the metering right on a 3 circuit dominator can be a pain. I would look at a 4150 style Demon, they flow a little more than a Holley at the same rating.
