I know this subject has been beat to death but just picked up my motor Friday from builder (btw Fordstokers.com has been great to work with) and need to put carb on it. It's a 347 with trick flow heads, edelbrock performer rpm, and comp cam (Duration 274/282, Lift .555/.565). I've got an edelbrock 600 sitting in box from another motor I have but concerned this would be too small. Just curious on what other are running with similiar set up. Thanks in advance.

That's actually a somewhat moderate cam for a street performance 347, it'll make a crapload of torque, especially midrange. It's not all that big for a 347 in a Mustang. But yeah, a decent 347 like that really does need a 750.
To give you an idea on the Quick Fuel sensitivity, when I put the 650 mechanical with annular boosters on my 302...it was so stupid sensitive out of the box, that I could have gone with the 750 annular and been fine. I ended up having to jet down like 6 sizes and increase high speed air bleeds by like 4-5 sizes to reduce the booster sensitivity. They make a VERY responsive carburetor, so you can get away with running on the big side and still be fine at low rpm. You just have to not be afraid to learn to REALLY tune a carb.
Who cares how much horsepower it has, all that matters is how fast it goes!
Untested 331, lots of suspension, chewing up corners.
