A 750 Holley is definately enough to support a 455, but not necesarily yours, compression ratio?

The more HP you want out of it (i.e.: high compression, lopey cam, headers, porting, etc...) the bigger the carb (more cfm) needed. It sounds like you're going to need more info on your engine before you can determine if your carb is big enough.
