    Default 4 BBL Carb Conversion

    I would like to upgrade to a 4bbl intake and carburetor on my M886, would like to ask if you have done this and what parts are required, like to buy new. My big concern is mating up the linkage, especially the transmission linkage on the carb.

    Thanks

    Surprised no one has chirped in yet. 500 cfm or smaller with a dual plane intake. May offer some improvement over the BBD.
    The real power sucker is the heads, the valves are small and the ports are tiny. The cam is another bottle neck.
