really? you guys seem ideal on a 750. I always thought a 750 was too big.

It's not that the 750 is to big, but more difficult to tune in on milder engines in the RPM range you drive in or a varried range of RPM's. The smaller carb , with smaller venturi's have more velocity and will give a better throttle response in a varied, around town drive.

The biggest item not addressed here is what is up with your engine? Stock, modified? If so, what was done?
Trans modded or stock?
Rear end gear ratio. Whatcha got?
Type of driving?

My smaller carb recomendation is made with a side plate of caution rather than a typical hot rodder answer or racer mind set.

If you can tune a carb, you can get a 1050 Dom to work on a stock 318. Not saying you'll like it as compared to a 500 cfm carb, which is most suitable for it.

The engine is stock except for maybe headers. The 727 only has a shift kit. As for the rear end, im not sure what gears i have yet. My challenger is happily my daily driver since the day i got my license(except for the winter months). I take the car to the track whenever i get a chance.
