Looking at either the Offenhauser 6019DP or the Ofy 6227C. Will run a small Holly 4 barrel initially. Engine is being totally rebuilt. Is bored 030 over. Will have a mild cam and a header....... thoughts?

Thanks

The DP forces you to run the carburetor sideways with the fuel bowls over the rising heat from the exhaust manifolds.
There have been complaints of the sideways orientation affecting carb operation during turns.
The runner divider does decrease the area and may limit upper rpm power.

Get the "C"

Before you choose a cam you need to know what the compression ratio will be so you don't end up with detonation problems.
Please don't use the detonation prone Comp catalog cams or the Crane antiquated long exhaust duration cams.

Here is the catalog cam list.

Have you installed the pistons yet?

Thank you. I will order the C. Am waiting on the crank to come back from the machine shop. Should be here Tuesday. Don't know yet if the crank needs any grinding before ai order the rod bearings. Either way, the bottom end should be put together by the end of the week, baring no more delays. The pistons are ringed, just waiting on the crank.
