Hello all, New here. I'm in the process of freshening up a LQ9 to put it in my 66 Lemans convertible. I want to go with a carb to keep that old school look. I have the following specs i'm considering. Please let me know if you see anything wrong with this setup. This is just a cruiser so not looking for anything crazy and like everyone, trying to do this on a tight budget. Might do upgrades in the future if money is available.

As for the carb, is it better to go with a vacuum or mechanical secondaries?
