Completely off the wall, but have you seen split webers used.

Using 1 and a half would give you three ports.

I don't know the details of how it was done and on A series it seems to have been done to get round rules for racing so the manifold stayed the same.

Will there be any advantage over the SU's? I always found webers to be difficult to set up and SU's were more forgiving. They do look good though.

Yes split webers are a great idea 8) I've seen them before & they work great I do agree I like my SU's & they will go back on if the weber is a pain to set up The main saving is in the weight the weber & the manifold are so lite compared to my SU setup I'll use a 50 dcoe once I've initially got it running

Fingers crossed with the weight lose I've planned for the doors / windows over winter as well as I'll run a 50 dcoe weber after the initial 45 + more boost 12s is a realist target :D Definitely looking @ doing a few Saturday night specials @ the pod 8) 8)
