Twin Carby

Seems that an oppurtunity has risen itself. Twin carby manifold and carb's(need rejetting) for a 250 crossflow. The price is very reasonable, but i want to get some input from you guys.

I would install it all myself(doesn't seem too hard) but something that i've always thought about is what if one carb is not in complete sync with the other?? Or is there some form of link between the two, so this is never the case??

Also, would there be a big perfomance gain vs fuel consumption??

And would i be wasting my money if i don't have extractors.

A few questions i know, but all responses are welcome.

Cheers
Matt

I've got an extractors/2.5" setup. No other engine mods appart from that.

What benifits would such a setup give? And would the fuel consumption be much worse?

Fuel consumpsion depends on your right foot!!! But years ago I fitted a 350 Holley and manifold on X-flo and fuel consumption went down heaps for I didn't have to kick it down much got heaps of acceleration in the higher ratio [c4 auto]. Alot depends on how its set up, make sure you have adjustable linkages between carbs or spring and screw like Webers sidedroughts..
Deff. need good exhaust to make any difference.
