I have a Holley 420 Mega blower with dual 750's (Holleys blower carbs with no choke) on top of a 454. The motor is Mercury 525sc that I put the bigger blower on. I can't seem to get enough fuel through them to run 6lbs of boost. They run great jeted at 90 primary and 96 secondary while running 3lbs of boost, but with that set up I have not received any performance gains.
I have switched pulleys for 6lbs and it runs awesome with big gains but way to lean. I don't think I can put big enough jets in the carbs to get a rich enough mixture to keep the blower safe, nice, and cool.
So my questions are: Do I need to go to bigger carbs? Witch carbs should I go to? Can I just keep tweeking the carbs I have to make them work?
the carbs are pleanty big enouf, your high speed air bleeds need to be changed ,you have a poor signal be cause of the size of the carbs, I think smaller air bleeds will riched it up ,then you can put close to stock size jets in or get some 600cfm carbs you will have a better air signal which will draw more fuel in , cfm does not mean more fuel just more air,I cannot type
A Return System Is Used For A Setup Such As Yours. The Fuel Pressure Is Set And Never Changes Where The Deadhead System Waits Until The Fuel Meets The Pump pressure . At That Time The Fuel Demand Could Be 15 Lbs causing a lean fuel situation
Ex. with a return systemThere Is always A Flow Of Fuel To Supply The Carbs,THE Return System Is Used On Efi Systems.
