What is the best carb for a '95 Mustang GT 302 that is stock except the EFI has been taken off and an Edelbrock Performance RPM intake has been added. I will be using this as a street summer car for me and the family. The engine is replacing a 302 in an old '70 convertible that is automatic.
Everyone likes power when you step on it though I'm not going to be out racing this around and want something I can drive with ok gas milage when I don't jump on it.
Until I purchase the new carb can the original 2 barrel carb be used and what would that be like?

so he sold it to me and my engine loved that thing :-)
i'd go that or the 4160 that mystang suggests
or edelbrock 600cfm (those are less tunable as holleys and BGs), but seem to be great ouf-of-the-box
I have a 650 of them on new engine, but not driven/tuned yet
As for the BGs, I never had anything bad about them but I wouldn't go 670. rather 525-ish .... (under 600)
or even better give them a call and see what they suggest. It depends as well on whay money you want to spend
302ci, Edelbrock RPM heads and cam, 650 Holley DP(Ultra Street Avenger), Hooker Long Tube headers and Flowmaster 40s
Quick Performance Racing 9" rear, Moser axles, 3.5:1 trac-loc from FRPP and T5 transmission.
CSRP disc brakes front and FRPP discs back. http://www.gascc.ie
I have and love an Edelbrock 600 on my 331. Not as finely tunable as a holley design carb, but it's very, very easy to tune, and requires much less maintenance. No gaskets below fuel level to leak, and only a couple parts that you need to worry about changing to adjust the mixture. I can change rods in 2 minutes, and change rods and jets and adjust the floats in 15min. Try doing that will a holley.
That said, I'll probably upgrade to a Demon down the road after I get my hands on a set of aftermarket heads. I'm the kind of guy that likes to tinker with things, so tuning a Demon probably won't bother me.
