Did you read my REPORT?

Quote
The medium- and high-performance power plants received the Rochester "Quadrajet" (4MV) four-barrel carburetor. This included the 327/275hp, the 350/255, the 350/295, the 350/300, the 396/325, and the 396/350 engines. Rated at 750CFM, this was a carburetor that could deliver good performance out of the higher power engines when the secondaries were opened, yet still retained good gas mileage under normal conditions, due to the small primaries. Rochester carburetors were known for their simplicity and reliability.

I appreciate the response, I was  thinking it was 750 CFM!
