    Default Using a Quadrajet on 355 advice

    hi guys, im a long time reader and first time poster.

    i want to get peoples advice on using a Quadrajet on a 355 im going to start getting built soon. looking for something pretty strong around 450hp at the flywheel. (hopefully)
    obviously im aware i will need to get ithe carby modified with a big needle etc. what else will need doing to it?

    has anyone used a quadrajet before on a similar engine?

    ill be using a c.o.m.e racing 355 stroker kit, a set of their vn alloy heads with 207cc intake runner volume and 2.08" intake valve, and either a redline or come single plane manifold. unsure on cam yet.

    what does everyone think of this recipe?

    my biggest query is about the quadrajet though. the car is a VL and will be a weekender and not a daily drive. i want it to look relatively stock and keep everything under the bonnet.


    thanks everyone.
