I have a Chevy performance CT525 crate engine with a holley 750Hp double pumper and a howards cam for a weekend street driven ls swap 82 regal and I was wondering would this carb be too much on the street I am running a GM single plane intake and a Howards cam.

What trans?

Chevy recommends a 650 for that engine but tested it with a 750.

So the Dyno numbers on the sheet used a 750 Holley

A basic rule is vacuum secondary's with an auto

Mechanical with a manual

But that said I usually use a mechanical secondary carb

You'll be fine with the 750. It has enough gear and converter to help get it going.

Greetings LSx82 & all; I really like the cam ya picked & the intake. With that carb you may find ya got a little flat spot going full on from a slow roll. But like Bracket Chevy & Turna said you'll be fine for an all out on the converter start. Good Luck & if ya got carb questions just ask us guys, Ole' Bopb
