    .030 over 383, stealth heads, 9.44:1 cr ... eddy performer rpm manifold with Holley 770 no spacer ... great cold start, great hot start, great throttle response, could use a little more low end torque but doesn't take long to open right up ! ...

    Yeah, I went a little large there. I was set on the DP-4B, three or four weeks of frustration, trying to secure one, they almost seem to vanish before my eye's. Then you could not find one. That is when I decided to look at the Performer, with that said, there is a very clean 74 400 block sitting in my shop. Have been waiting for the right time to build a stroker out of....And that is why I went RPM, I was planning ahead, did not think there would be a detrimental effect going a little bigger for now.

      You are correct on all counts....I just bought an Edelbrock DP4B. I am going to use it with a 750 Edelbrock carb and eventually swap the 3.23 rear for a 4.11. I'll see how that works. The engine will operate [I think] in the 3500-4000 RPM range and that will make me as happy as a little green frog!
