Murrayf, thanks for the input. Performance may be an issue, but I think it all depends on how much the lag is. New York's humidity could qualify as "high", and I imagine if I got caught in a rainstorm it wouldn't be the best for the carbs either. I will just have to wait and see. It will definitely be a later in the build, maybe a winter project even. Also, when you take the carbs and put them in the front that god-awful rear end "frame space" will stick out even more awkwardly. We'll see, we'll see.
