I have a '66 'stang that has been modified a lot by the previous owner (upgraded to a 302 engine, side pipes, etc). It's taken a lot of work but we're finally getting close to it being mechanically in good condition. I am hearing a popping noise at higher speeds when I accelerate still though; my dad suggested it might need a new carburetor. Any thoughts on if that's the correct diagnosis and if so, what kind of carb might go well with that engine (Holley, etc)?

Could be but there are many other factors to consider as well. Does the car still have points? How old is the carb? How long has it been sitting unused? How old is the coil? Was there any old gas in the tank?

If it still has points I'd switch it over to a full electronic ignition system. MSD has everything you need. If you want to change the carb I would go with a edlebrock instead of a holley. But if the carb has been sitting for a while a simple carb rebuild would do the trick.
