Default What about a bigger carb

620" BBC all motor on gas,14.8 compression-355 cnc dart heads,super victor intake.I have a stock 1050 HP dominator on and was wondering how much power you think it would gain if i went with a bigger carb or maybe a Custom built carb.Thanks

We had a 1150 out of box holley on a 565 sent it to apd had them redo it, bolted it on and gained .15 with no other changes. I think you need a 1150-1250 anyways.

I have a 1250 on my 447 SB2. I would go bigger if it didn't escalate in price, requires a custom carb. I may have to try two carbs on the 460 SB2 we are building... :shock: On a 620 I would get a 1250 at least.
