Re: 4bbl vs 2bbl Motorcraft Carb, 360 engine
Actually, a 4 barrel and a 2 barrel of equal CFM, properly set up should produce the same power. The 4 barrel should be more economical to drive around town, because you are only using half of the carb most of the time. 4-barrels are nice for the street or running in mud, where you can stomp on it and get that kick in the butt when the secondaries open up. I prefer 2 barrels (probably a throw back to my early days of SCCA club racing with my Dad. Weber 48's Baby!) mostly because they have a nice predictable throtal response, especially for low RPM stuff (rocks). I don't so much want a kick in the butt when I am balanced of camber. I think I may have a MC2100 with 1.21 's if you are looking for something like that.
