You wanna really hear wicked? Try a Boss 429 with dual quads. ...and 2-1/4" primary-tube headers - to 3" pipe back to the Flowmasters...Love it on my 68 j-code -- especially the sound of all 6 bbls at WOT.

Yep, my buddy has the rare FoMoCo over-the-counter dual-quad manifold and two 600cfm vacuum secondary carbs on it with a progressive linkage. The rear carb is actually the primary carb since those primary venturi are closest to the center of the engine... Then at about 1/3 throttle the front carb primary is pulled, then the secondaries on both open together as much as needed. Just try to hold that sucker back - or to pry yourself off the seat to reach forward enough to grab the shifter! That sucker will haze 9" slicks all through First and Second gears, leave 30' of rubber in Third and another 10-15' going into Fourth...whatarush!!!
Unfortunately, he no longer has those slicks, and he won't race the car any more because the 11-1/2" clutch is starting to slip at those power levels. Just where, oh where do you even find those clutches any more? BTW, this same guy won't race his '73 Q-code Mach 1 on slicks any more - he's twisted two (small-input) toploader input shafts already!The boss 29 car sounds incredible. I'd love to just watch it put down 15 feet of rubber shifting into fourth gear.
