Regarding the street master: have you ran one before? At 445 cubes I suspect it will play a lot nicer than my experience on a 390. It was a total turd until at least 2000 but probably more honestly...

.4 is right and you are right that it could be relevant enough to cause issue given the right circumstances. Heads that have been milled down once already lose even more cc's. At some point the next...

Lot of good advice here. One thing that I have against the little 390 carbs is that they are severely overpriced for the features they have. The QFT slayer 450 is a better option IMO.

I'd like to see that post if you could find it. It's a bit hard to believe considering what pre-blended can be had for (or even full synthetic) so I'd like to read it.
