    I have the factory 63 buick 215 4 barrel motor. i was gonna run a edelbrock 650 carb. Is this too much carb for the stock motor?

    That should be fine.

    Does it have a 4GC?

    If so, those are about 700 CFM and I like the old Rochesters and Carters.

    The 215-300-340 is a good engine.
    Like all, it has its strong and weak points.

    And is the "British Small Block Chevy" sort of cult.

    A little background on what you have and what you think you want to do/have going forward.

    And what your level of experience/capability, budget and time.

    That will help a lot.

    Might be you can live with the 215, and might be that you need it as a door stop.

    If you're going to run an E-brock carb, go with a 500 at the most.
