Honestly I would like to see 40k but it will only bring 35k I'd bet.

Got the 800 cfm Quadrajet molested and rebuilt.
Thinned the primary blades and throttle shaft while busing the baseplate.
Thinned the venturi's and smoothed internal casting flash , along with enlarging the idle air bleeds and bypass air.
Ruggles book says it should flow around 830cfm now.

Swapped the Holley over to the Quadrajet.
Made a fuel regulator mount and swapped the fuel lines around for single inlet.
Need to pick up a couple 5" long 5/16 bolts to complete the installation.

I'm trying to achieve/exceed the performance of Holley 800dp/Eddy Performer 2-o intake, with a Quadrajet and early factory high rise manifold.
(Manifold will be next if the carb performs well.)

I spent the last couple nights replacing the single valve springs in my 454 with a set of Comp #930-16, 10* retainers, locks and rotater eliminators of course.

The job was made easy with a Proform valve spring compressor, it even stays locked in the compressed position.

It even has bullet mufflers in the downpipes! I cannot wait to run it and see what it does. YouTube

Took the Pontiac for a spin with the modified Quadrajet.
It idles now at a stoplight without loading up, and has a lot better off idle/part throttle manners.( APT still needs some adjusting)
The secondary performance is still lacking though.
No bog, and it transitions over fine, it's just the opening rate is slow.

I need to find a part# for a primary choke pull off that fits a M4ME with a straight vacuum line attachment.
( any suggestions)

Pulled my 307 and PG today. About 20 minutes with the clip off. 

Also went to Ben‘s to drop off some parts and bs. Took me for a ride in his car and did some burnouts. Good day.
