Hey guys. My engine specs are in my sig. I haven't fired the motor yet I'm just trying to get some things ready for when I do. I know that its not possible to really dial in the carb without running it but was just wondering if I could get a could starting point from expeeiences. Carb is a holley 850dp has down leg boosters and screw in air bleeds so I can easily change those as well. I'm also trying to recurve the dist. Its a stock gm with accel coil all new cap and rotors any advice on which springs and weights. Adj vac adv? Thanks guys.

I'm running a 496 w/ Canfield 310's, RPM Airgap, factory spec LS6 cam (good deal smaller than yours) 850DP. Stock set up was almost perfect. Just had to swap in the orange pump cam, but I think that has more to do with my 4.11's. So, I'm running 80's front and back with .031 shooters front and back. I imagine you'll need more jet in the back than I'm using.
