Either proform 750 or maybe double pumper I have a few choices so whichever one it responds to more.

Well it already had a 351 in it but whoever did before I got it did a hack job motor was not straight stock headers which caused steering linkage to rub. But other than looking at the atrocity they created it went well lol

Looks nice! My future plans also involve a 351, but probably fuel injected.

Looks good!

A 750 Holley Double Pumper would be a good choice.
If you can find one, pick up a copy of Alex Warlordy's "Supertuning Holley Carburetors" book.
It is chock full of tuning tips and secrets.

Almost any Turbo will work on a carbureted engine.
You will just have to use an igloo or hat on the carb.
The igloo fits completely around the carb so it pressurizes the entire carb which means you won't need a special carburetor.
The hat fits on top of the carb and using it will require a special "blow through" carburetor.

With an igloo, no, the igloo costs more, but you save the cost of a new blow through carb.

With a hat, yes, you will have to buy a new blow through carb.
