    Hey all

    Im considering doing a bit of work to the VK for shits and giggles, Just wondering what sort of carbies i should run on it, Like triple webbers, SU's etc?? Or go something out there and do something like hak's BM, But run like 6 quad bike carbies??

    Let us know

    i cant see why a manifold couldnt be made for bike carbs. but bike carbs come in sets of 4 usually(because they have 4 cylinders) im not sure if you could make 6 work very easily, it could be done but you probably looking at alot of custom work to do it.

    twin or triple webbers would be cool once agan im not sure if youd get a manifold to suit.

    i once saw a ford 250 crossflow with 6 SUs on it was a very angry car

    4 would
    1. be pointless, go 3 or 6
    2. harder to setup
    3. look stupid
