Brake booster vacuum source

I'm working on getting everything hooked up on my engine swap and had a question about the brake booster vacuum source. I've got a 350 engine with a Performer intake and Edelbrock carb; both the carb and the intake have ports for vacuum connections for the booster. Probably a stupid question, but is one preferred over the other? I figured just as a simpler hookup, the port on the carb would be easier to get to, but wanted to make sure. Thanks!

Re: Brake booster vacuum source

I have the same setup as you just mention, the 3/8" vac port coming out the back side of the carb is recomended for the brake booster.
