2V or 4V on PE90

Post by FP1201 » Sat Dec 27, 2014 8:54 am

It's been said the Holly 2300 (350cfm) is good for a PE90 I'm at a crossroad:
My 2V is off the engine for rebuild (thanks alcohol fuel :angry5: ) and I've got a 4V Holly of a Ford 351W. Is it worth the trouble to adapt the 4bbl on or just stick with the 2bbl?
The packet engine is only 313cid, but the Edelbrock on my 302 truck engine works just fine, but it's an engine turning up to 5K versus one that won't turn over 2,600.
Mother Nature plays to win, and if she doesn't get you, her bitch of a daughter Krama will.
