I'm using a 750 dbl pump demon carb jetted to the sky   Rpm is at 5000  I think I could go at least 850 or bigger   ANY SUGGESTIONS I'm all ears

That is way too small IMO. I run an 1150 on my 468. 10 and 1/2 to 1 a dominator would be a good idea i think.

You can always buy a user 850 and test it. Compared to new they are half the price, with a time and a rebuilt kit good as new... And if it doesn't work just sell it for what you paid for it. Carbs don't loose there value other than new and used.
