You can always go with a Sterling Nikki if you're really looking for a good, race-proven rotary carb:
http://www.sterlingmetalworks.com/th...ling_nikki.htm

Valued at over $400 is currently available at $285 IN THIS THREAD

If you are interested then not only will you get a good deal on the carb but you'll be helping RCC with give-aways at 7stock and open the possibility of a LIVE webcast for those that can't make it to 7stock this year!

Good luck with the carb search.

Which makes perfect sense. They are sacrificing safety either way. lol

I'm sure a Pro-Jection would work quite well. Tweakit.net has some tapered-bore IDA-style throttle bodies that I've been drooling over, too.

If you want to use a Sterling as Phoenix7 suggests, you'll have to re-drill a stock 4-port 13B intake manifold for the Nikki bolt pattern. As far as other carb suggestions, I'm a fan of Weber carbs and their clones.

i currently have a 4DI setup i'm planning on using on a RB holley intake. had it for quite some time just haven't taken the time to start the install. it being a DD it's hard to do things like this and chance having it down for any length of time. but it'll get there.

The only problem I hear with the projection is the tune-ability. Also it is on the big side. Personally the Tweakit.net would probably work better for you. Also atkins makes an injection kit. http://atkinsrotary.com/store/catalo...t-p-16951.html

I have a holley pro-jection tuned by RB. and was pulled of a running 13b... The best part about them is they come with everything. ITB's or any other TB need a lot of things to go with it. stand alone, injectors, rails, pump, ect. ect. ect.

Tuning is very easy.
