Smile Best Carb? '95 Mustang GT 302 w/ Edelbrock Performance RPM intake

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?

being stock with that intake, I'd go with a holley 600 (model 4160). a 650 will be too big unless you had aftermarket heads, higher compression, and a bigger cam.

And the winner is? Ya with a stock motor I would go with either a Holley 570 Street Avenger or no bigger than a Holley 600.

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

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.
