How many of you SBF racers & street/strip fellas run or have run a Holley 700DP?

Seems like I see lots of folks running a 650DP or a 750DP, but not that many running a 700DP.... Are they an ugly duckling carb or a overlooked sweet carb?

The reason for my asking is this: Currently I have a good 650DP (List# 0-4777-2; 65/74 jets; #31/#28 squirters; 2.5"PV) with a Stealth intake on my 306". However, I'm planning to pull the Stealth and install a C90X-B intake. I also have a good, but old 780VS (List #3310) Holley on the shelf. So I was wondering if it would be worth-while to track down a 700DP Holley to run on the C90X, rather than use the 650DP or even the 780VS......... Any thoughts on this are appreciated!

By the way: 351W heads, 1.94/1.60's; Ultradyne solid lifter cam; 252/260 @ 0.050; 586"/608" @ 106 lobe separation & has 4.56 rear gears.

Thanks again for any opinions or thoughts!
Ryan

I've ran everything imaginable on a little 306. The larger 750-800 sizes usually give a little better mph at the top of the track but kill response and torque down low without a killer stall converter. The 600-700 have smaller primaries for quicker throttle response off the line. With a dual plane, stick shift, and big cam, I like the 650 DP on top of a 1" four hole spacer.

I'm a big fan of the 4778. I use them on as many SBF Holley applications as I can.

I have/had a 700 Holley DP.

It been a good carb, right up until I built my new 347. Ran great initially for 10-15 miles and has since falled apart and I can't get it to idle to save its life. A rebuild hasn't fixed my problem. Anyways, I really don't blame the carb size... I think I have something stupid going on internaly somewhere. Unfortunately my backup carb is a 850 DP which runs just fine, lol

Thanks for all the responses, Guys!


2bav8,
Do you want to sell your 700DP then?

Ryan

Ryan,

I'm going to keep the carb, but thanks for the interest.
