My dad is turning his 383 into a 496. Everything is going to be changed and we will need a bigger carb. He thinks it needs an 850. Been looking at the quick fuel carbs but maybe there is something better? He will be running pump gas not e85

If he wants an out of the box deal in a "budget" price range, they are nice carbs.   

Any carb you get, if you have the option to call and have someone at least suggest the best carb in there line up, or have them spec one out for the application and its use, is gonna be the best end result.

There is one brand in particular that I would not suggest.   If you want to know PM me.

Otherwise there are plenty of carb companies that should do a good job.
AED, BLP, Braswell to name a few.

Braswell is in the top.  They have improved all the holley designs and have very good custom programs.  Basic but sharp looking carbs.   Never heard a bad thing about them.   Pricey 
Any power adder will do.
