Just because a guy hurt his engine with 1X50 carb doesn't mean yours will get hurt if it is set right. A dyno is where this will show up before it gets hurt. I run a 1250 on mine but I was looking for max HP. A friend of mine runs a Mopar 572 and ran a 1050 on the dyno and didn't hurt it at all and made good HP. The 720hp 572 BBC crate engines come with 1095 demons so it really has nothing to do with carb size but the tuning ability of you or the dyno guy. Porting/polishing actually make more air flow which would worsen a lean condition if anything but probably not noticeabley. If the carb is set right and you have pyros and the A/F hooked up correctly I cannot see why anything would get hurt. If it shows lean richen up the carb with bigger jets. A 1150 dominator will run just fine if it is set right and in good shape. Don' sweat it. What heads are you running, comp ratio, cam specs ??? I was typing while you were !
