Dominator bowls have inlets on both sides and other than that are the same as 4150 bowls but switching from one side to the other isn't going to solve any problems you may be having with your floats.

I think he might mean other side of the bowls...like driverside instead of passenger side.
That’s what I need clarification on. Are we talking cathedral bowls or side hung bowls?

^^^ I totall agree. The inlet isn't the problem. Both inlets (on cathedral bowls) pass through the same needle and seat assembly. If you're not getting enough fuel it's the needle and seat that isn't large enough, not the inlet.

It's a daily driver 350, I'm pretty sure it doesn't need a larger needle and seat. It's probably just got dirt in the system.

all 4150 style carbs whether its a vac sec or dp have dual feed bowls unless specified like a 1850 600 single feed carb which has the inlet on the driver side and has a tube that runs along the drivers side to the rear bowl.

So yes if you want more performance you best be running a dual feed line to both bowls. Can't see in your pic but looks like you have the chrome dual feed line on there.
