nope just right for street use buddy, if it were a drag car with a 383 that could really breathe (such as AFR or trick-flow heads with intake and headers) you shoud go with a 850.

To Adam: A 650 should be more than enough. You can find calculators on line to determine what size carb you should run, but they will also say that a 650 will work. A 355 will only need a bigger carb if it is highly modified such as high compression, has great heads, and runs in a higher rpm range than the average 350, say over 7000 rpm's. The kit that you have would not require it. You might get a slightly higher top speed with a bigger carb but it will suffer in the low rmp range
