    I still have a Mikuni sidedraft for the G54B. PM me if anyone is interested as I previously listed it in the for sale section. The 44s are what JB recommended in the day. I have a brand new Mikuni manifold and linkage kit that's why I'm selling the used one. The carbs can be had on EBAY fairly frequently buy a bit pricey The rebuilding kits and all other parts are available from Wolf Creek Racing in New York. Actually, we's the world-wide distributor for the PHH carbs. I have a number of articles from back in the day.The Mikuni carbs were generally thought of to be superior to the Webers because their mounting and ability to hold tuning and adjustment were superior.

    Ever wonder why Grand Nationals were so quick, Draw thru turbo, ol skool. Still works very well and simple as pie.

    In reading through suggestions, replies and posts, I think one major option is being seriously overlooked. It seems to me for the kind of money these people are spending, one could install a fuel injected motor mildy built, get better results and save money. Isn't this an insane amount of fab and expense to utilize antiquated technology?
    I'm an amature mechanic. Maybe I'm putting to much faith in fuel injection?

    Computerized Fuel injection is better because it can adjust to conditions unlike a carb, otherwise new cars would still have carbs.

    I think what your reading mostly is what people want to do independently with their modifications and what they are familiar with. You have old school and new school going on. Keep your faith and then make your own choices on what you like to do. You'll get good response either way you go I'm sure.

    IS THERE ANYONE WHO SELLS MANDREL BENT ALUMINUM TUBING??

    Son got permit and man.. I really thought that I'd have this truck running for him by now..
    If I dont use that Dual intake manifold, I thought of a cheaper route by using stock intake and cutting it after it comes to a "Y", and use a mandrel "L"
    to use a pair of single downdrafts sitting on top of that.

    I've got a few sets of bike side drafts but for nothing over 750's though.

    That Ol Rochester that I fabb'd to the Quest intake worked OK, just couldnt' get it to idle down under 1200.
    I'll look at it more in a couple weeks.

    The reason I went with the duel carb set up was purely for nostalgia, and to be unique.

    Don't get me wrong, EFI is the way to go if you're looking for a plug and play build. But there is something about old school carbies that has a craftsman aesthetic to it. A nicely built carby is a work of art in it's own right - and you don't have to have a wiring diagram and a degree in electronics to fix them...

    Exactly, I could have DOHC Turboed my mighty max but that already been done, and quite a lot actually and I wanted to be different. And while I wont make as much power the WOW factor is deff there when you pop the hood and everyone sees multiple air cleaners

    As someone raised on computer everything, I like the old school look, too. Glad it's not another 4G63T swap.

    Those dual sidedrafts will sound a lot better than EFI, too.

    There is something about hearing those secondaries crack open when you're sinking the boot into the carpet (and you can feel the mid range torque band coming out to say hello to you when you hit it right) EFI doesn't have the same magic to it...
