| What is this set-up worth - in monetry terms? Are the adaptpors (to be able to use twin choke on otherwise standard inlet manifold) available new anywhere or is it a case of keeping an eye on e-bay?|

| Its worth as much as you are willing to pay. Way over the odds is normal. The price is currently US $410.00 with three days to go. I am sure the price will become interesting nearer the end.|

| The above manifold assy, looks nice but I think might be too much money.|
The adaptors for the standard manifold, I have not seen any on ebay for a long time. SAH made one variant which was drilled for both breathers. I wonder if it might not be possible to reproduce this in an alternative material?

| Hi, I was considering making one as I've been seeing suitable carbs for approx £30. I've got some facilities at work so think I will take a look at this in the coming weeks. I see it's now over £200 on e-bay, makes you wonder how high it will go!|

| The adaptor plate would be a very good thing to have made up, there are so many of the suitable Weber twin choke carbs kicking around, I know they are not as good as a twin choke inlet manifold but they look simple to have fabricated and I have found them to work very well.|

| How much for a twin carb manifold on eBay the?|
No one got one lying around they want to get rid of?

| Twin choke manifold is only worth £70 or so. Carbs always be picked up for less then £50. One that's jetted right makes it worth more.|
I'm not a fan of the adaptor plates. I can't see how breathing a twin choke carb through a small hole can make much difference. More noise and not much power increase I think.
I've got an SAH one spare if anyone's interested.

| Have you ever used your SAH adaptor Burrrt? No, they're not as good as a 4-stud manifold, but they do work. The SAH kit of adaptor, DCD carb & twin tailpipe exhaust was worth about 10bhp, so not to be sniffed at. I have used the SAH + DCD & Jetex on an otherwise standard engine, and it made it quite lively, took away all the standard 3rd & 4th gear asthmatic tendencies above 4500 rpm...and gave better low-end response with improved fuel economy.|
