Carbking's points are to be taken into consideration no matter what carb is used,even hi performance carbs must be matched to the manufacturers recomendations for best results.
I posted earlier on this same subject how I milled off the top of a stock 261 intake to adapt a 2 barrel carb with excellent results a few years ago.Yes, the job required a little welding,and yes the cast intake can be MIG welded,but the modification were done with common hand tools,hand held grinder,files ,drills and taps.

Hmm... well I suppose just for the Hell of it I could do some measureing.

But hey, you know the integrated head inline 6's? I hear that they're garbage but they came stock with a 2bbl carburetor. Do you think it'd be logical to assume that one could cut it from the head at the 3 "arms" and weld on new ends from a removeable intake manifold? This having a two barrel, BOLT-ON intake manifold?

the carb on the integrated head engines is this weird two stage thing that any junkyard guy will laugh at you for trying to run.I had mine apart about 6 times trying to figure out wht the idle circut wasnt working.finally gave up last week and im going with a 2g.working on an adapter in tech right now that should be done monday(cnc machines are great)and then im gonna open the intake up a bit to make it flow a bit better. should work out okay.
