    carb and pump sizing

    Hello.

    Not up on engines.have a 454 olds and want to change the stock carb for say a edelbrock.

    Was thinking a 750.

    Is that too big.engine is stock bar a set of headers.

    Also at the moment it runs what looks like a standard fuel pump.would this be man enough for the new carb.

    Really dont want to go electric.would it be worth upgrading to a different pump.

    Thanks
    Wayne
