Also what has to be done roughly? Just tuning the carbs?

Cheers

The big problem with bike carbs is so few people actually know how to tune them properly for cars, being in the UK you shouldn't have a problem as there are quite a few bike engines being used in cars, R1 carbs would be nice as they are CV type, if you are going to use normal bike carbs then get something small like cbr600, throat size of about 30mm would be about perfect.

You'll have to make up a manifold, 12mm alloy plate with four runners and some silicon couplers, you'll need to either blank off or re-route the water that used to run through your old manifold, also you will need to modify your accelerator cable and possibly the pull ratio depending on carbs used.

Thanks very much for explaining that im stuck on something though..

As the car is on a carb already how would you do the fueling? and would i need a new fuel pump?
