That unit would have been used with 77 and later Buick Olds Pontiac. If I interpret Cliffs book correctly (page 43) they have great potential for performing well.

Nice unit!  I use a lot of the 1977-80 Olds carbs to build custom units.  Just needs a little help in a few areas, good kit, high performance parts and slight recalibration.  Give me a call when you are ready and I'll set you up with what you need....tks...Cliff

Thanks Cliff ; I just received the kit I ordered last week and you sent me the correct parts that it needs . All the jets and rods were incorrect . I am in the process of putting it back together (when I can) Thanks
