4.6 stroker carb?

Im thinking about building a 4.6 stroker for my jeep but i do not want to deal with the electronics. So can i build a 4.6 stroker with a carb? Has it been done before and i was thinking about maybe running a 4 barrel carb.. Will the 4.6 be able to handle the 4 barrel?

I run a holley 390 on my 4.2 so yes a stroker will handle a 4 bbl. heres some threads on running a 4.0 head with a carb that might help you out
Do everything with a positive attitude, it won't always work but you'll piss enough people off to make it worthwhile.

the voices aren't real but they sure have good ideas.
