AMC 401 build. Which carb???
I just finished my 76' 401 for my 84 CJ7 (had it done) and now I have a few other questions about carburetion. Iíll list some of the motor specs, then my jeep specs and my driving goals and maybe you guys can give me some usable info from there. There is NO smog control on my motor and I don't care about MPG's.
I wonít list my whole build sheet as it is 9 pages so here is a partial list.
Block decked & Bored 0.30
OEM Heads .010
Stage 2+ head port
Wiseco forged pistons
10/10 OEM crank
ARP all over
Roller tip rocker
Edelbrock performer intake
Comp cam 270/270 lift .480/.480
SS valves & valve job
Blueprinted & balanced
Oil passages ported
4:56 ring & Pinion (I know its a little low but I had them)
5 speed manual nv4500
3 inch lift w/ 33 12.50 15 inch rim/tires
Full Detroit locker in the rear w/open front
Solid one piece axles AMC 20 rear.
Dana 300 factory transfer case
I wonít be doing much off roading. No rock crawling or mud bogging. As goofy as it may sound I like cruising around town and leaving the coffee can Hondas standing at the light. Itís my mix of a muscle car and top off fun jeep.
That all being said, any ideas on a carb and CFM? Whether I should do mechanical or vacuum secondaries.
Thanks a ton guys!
