Ok guys, I've got the 375 stroker together. All thats missing is the carb. I'm leaning towards a 950 HP. Maybe Bigs has something that would work? Here's the build up.
.020 over
3.7 stroke
SRP pistons 12.2 comp.
solid roller .620/.638 254/262 @.050
AFR 205's
Victor Jr. intake
MSD dist.
Any input?

You can't go wrong with the 950. It's a great carb.
I'm sorry, I don't know much about Bigs, but I do hear a lot of happy customers on this sight.

If you run the jet extensions you need the notched float. If you use a regular float, it hits them. Mkes it impossible to let the float drop all the way down into normal position. The fuel level in the bowl will be too high.

The jet extensions are very helpful when you start running quicker. If the car can 60 ft say 1.65 or quicker they help. Absolute requirement once you get into the low 1.50's 60 ft. When you leave the line really hard, all the fuel in the bowl rushes to the rear of the secondary bowl, away from the jets. The extensions keep the jets submerged in fuel. Not required on the primary side as the fuel sloshes towards the jets and keeps them covered.

Later,

David Cole
