I've used the HD8 on my turbo car. There's no Japanese carb that large,  
alas. But then again, there's only one!! 
The 2" Jag SU is actually a pretty decent carb.

My oft faulty memory says there were three basic SUs - the  HD-4, 1 1/2" 
throat used on MGA, the HD-6, 1 3/4" throat, AH 3000, and the  HD-8, 2" 
throat, Jag E-type. They were good carbs when new but do not know  how they 
have aged. Believe there were also some Japanese knockoffs  also.
