I have a 390 with a 750 CFM Carter AFB. The engine has high comp. 360 heads with of course dog leg ports with late model exhaust manifolds and 2 1/2" dual exhaust. It also has a Performer intake and a moderate cam. I wonder if someone can tell me the best combination of metering rods and jets to use. It seems to burn awfully rich under acceleration. Thanks!

Since Carter's are no longer available I called Edelbrock to get the correct jets and rod sizes for the altitude where I am for my AMXs 625 AFB. If I remember right I told them I have a 650 (since Edelbrock doesn't have a 625 and they're not real nuts about supporting Carters - or so I was told). Anyway, give 'em a call and they can get you the right setup.
