Hi Blaine

Go here for motorcycle throttle body info:

I'm using the GSXR 600 units for my conversion.  Their ID matches the
inlet ports on the head pretty well.   You can get them on ebay for

I'm going to go the throttle-body route, so as to keep costs at a minimum.  I'm thinking the way to go is with a throttle-body (or two) from a motorcycle or 4-wheeler.  My buddy and I put a pair of modified Yamaha 400 EX carbs on a corvair and WHEW!  Talk about snappy throttle response!  We had trouble with hood clearance, though, because the carbs are side-draft, and we don't have a mandrel bender at our disposal.  So I would like to stick with a pair of down-draft throttle-bodies if possible.  I'm not looking for performance so much as fuel economy and reliability.  Anyone care to comment on my ideas?
