Lolol. Damn Chris, you're as dangerous when you're bored as I am!
It's probably a GOOD thing that we don't live close to each other! I don't do jail time as well as I used to! Lolol.

The only reason for a gasket to leak is if it has a gap that the gasket can't fill, EG. unparallel surfaces or improper torque sequences. I can't believe that a cooling system could build enough...

Isn't 3.690" the stock stroke for a 429" any way? Realistically you can go to 2.200" just like the 460" crank I would think. Smaller if you don't plan on spraying it and turning it to the moon.

To begin with, it's a combination of fuel level in the bowl (how easily it pulls over into the main jet system and gets introduced into the air horn) and accelerator pump timing/shot volume.

You won't find an easier carb to tune (parts wise) than the Holley styles. The ones with the accessible emulsion tubes, replaceable air horns and air bleeds will give you the most tunability.

In a word.......no. The spark arrestors will impede the air flow a lot more than a choke will. If you could plumb some sort of a dual fresh air flow into that carb, you'd be surprised at the increase...
