Imo there is no good street/race carb. To get all out of your motor you would need two and change when needed. You might get a custom carb and do better but not of the shelf.

Yes on a stock 460 mud booger you will want a 750 cfm Holley vacuum secondaries (pt#03310-2 model 4160) and very important the carb its worth a few horsepower over the edelbrock carb. the filter should be installed in front of the fuel pump in front of the fuel pump not behind it I can't stress that enough if you want your pump to last a long time the pump is designed to push the fuel to the filter to the carburetor and not pull it. filter in front of the pump!!! filter in front of the pump!!!you will also need a one inch four hole or open spacer below the carb you will need some longer carb mounting studs 1 1/2 inch studs and you are set to go bogging
