Default Which carb for my 347?

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.

750 Quick Fuel, if you want to pay a bit more get it with annular boosters. Every circuit is tunable, so you can dial it in dead nutz to your engine.

Wow, that's a lot of lift...

My 600 Edelbrock is on the small side for my 331 w/Trick Flow heads. It runs great as a daily driver, but it isn't as adjustable as some people might like.

You have a bigger motor with a bigger cam. I'd say 650-700CFM, although I'm sure that 750 QuickFuel would tune out just fine.

It should have at least a 750 with those heads and cam.

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.

a 650 speed demon would be about right, Or a 750 annular.
