    I think I need to step up to a 750 my 391 is pretty hungry and I didn't even put that much cam in it. I have a 630 I think. It was the stock one on the 350 that I put #72 jets in. It just feels kind of lazy.

    Yeah, i did the same thing when i first built my 383, found that the stock one just wasn't enough(even with the 72 jets) once i stepped up to the 750 it was great /forums/images/graemlins/thumb.gif

    The first carb I slapped on my 388 was a 650cfm DP Holley.......way too small for that engine. I stepped up to a 750cfm Holley 3310 and it made a huge difference. 750cfm seems about right for a street 383 engine. /forums/images/graemlins/thumb.gif
