How do I choose a carburetor size?
To arrive at the most appropriate carburetor choice, there’s a basic formula: engine displacement multiplied by maximum rpm divided by 3,456. For example: a typical 355ci small-block—a 0.030-over rebuild—with a 6,000-rpm max engine speed would work well with a 616-cfm carb ((355 x 6,000) 3,456 = 616.32).
Does a bigger carburetor mean more power?
