So with all of the procrastination on my build, I have decided to switch to E85. I had a new Pro Systems 820cfm gas carb built for the motor but will need something else. I will probably sell it and by a new E85 carb
Who sells good ones and how do I know what size to get for E85?

Engine is still new and unfired. 468 BBC makes roughly 575hp at crank. 10.4:1 - solid cam roughly .612 lift.
Anything else to keep in mind?

In a year or so I will switch to turbo and blow thru carb. I would do it now but I kinda want to get it running first.

If your going to switch to turbo just run it on gas for now. If you do switch I would buy a reputable new carb and keep yours. Consider shipping, time, and you still have a new carb which you can sell. Put pen to paper. I switched to alcohol in 2011 w/ no regrets.
