Building a 461 stroker. Ported stock heads aluminum intake HFT cam 228/235 @ .050. lift is somewhere near 480/490 (can't remember exact lift). Engine is going in a 77 T/A with a Borg Warner 4spd and 308 rear. Mostly a street car but might see some track time. Goal is to be 400+up at the crank.

Which of these 2 carburetors is the better choice for my 461? Running pump gas and street manners are probably more important. Still want it to rip though.

750cfm vac sec manual choke 3310 series

Or

770 vac sec manual choke street avenger series
http://www.jegs.com/i/Holley/510/0-81770/10002/-1

*Price difference between the two isn't enough to concern me...


Thanks for the help!

I'm not a fan of Holley Vac Sec carbs, especially on manual trans cars. Mild automatic cars with tall gears, they are ok.

Bowties are for Pee-wee Herman. "Chevy": even the name sounds cheap, but not as cheap as your Pontiac will be with an LS transplant.

I think that engineers do things for a reason.Virtually all factory high performance engines came with vac sec carbs.I drive a stick shift RA V tunnel port engine on the street with the factory Holley vac sec carb.For a race most or only engine I would do the double pumper.Tom
