The Edelbrock website recommends Rochester 2GC carbs. Check out their page and Holley to see if there are other options and accessories. Probably need fuel lines, linkage, and Edelbrock says HEI won't fit.

Worthiness is a matter of opinion. Most say that one 4bbl is all you need and one carb is easier to tune...but I've never heard anyone say they didn't like someone else's 3x2 setup.

Let me share my personal experience with tri-power. I had a 66 Catalina with a 400 Pontiac engine from a 68 Grand Prix and it was equipped with a Quadrajet. I used to race a friend that had a 66 Catalina 2+2 with a 421 with a Carter carburator and he would always beat me by a car length. I put a stock Pontiac tri-power setup on my 66 and started beating him by a car..I picked up two car lengths in the quarter. Besides, trips looks cool.

I think you need one carb with choke and 2 without maybe Gene Chas will jump in here for he has 3x2 set up on a big block and will give you the dodo on his setup which should help you out.
