Should I get a bigger carb?

Like I posted a little earlier, I got a free 225. They also had an aluminum 4 barrel intake. Should I put that on my 225 and get a bigger carb or wouldnt that be very beneficial if the engine isnt built? I was told on the jeepster board that if I put an adapter for a 2 barrel on the 4 barrel intake that I would get more low end torque. Why exactly is that? Thanks

Re: Should I get a bigger carb?

you will get more low end torque than with the factory manifold because of the new intake design but unless you are gonna rebuild it with a better cam and better exhaust than just stick with the stock set up much more reliable

I have headers but I dont have a cam. So by the sound of it I should probably just wait till I get the $$ and go with a rebuild on the extra engine I got. Is it pretty much the same senario with the 4 barrel?
