Is there anyone on here that has gone down the twin carb conversion route>?

I want to do an engine conversion very soon, and I was either leading towards a b230 block with a 16 valve head, the b230ft or even possibly the twin carbs?

I have owned turbo'd cars throughout most of my driving life and they are imprinted into my code, but its hard to ignore the excellence of a good ol' naturally aspirated engine. any advice or testimonials will be greatly appreciated! sm4

Hi mate.
Speak to Ride_ on in N. Ireland. He turboed his 360 with a 940 engine.
Cheers Mark.
