agreed
and individual filters would be simple to find, relatively cheap and go with the look of the engine.
4 carb, 4 header tubes, 4 air filters its all individually setup go with the flow 8) then if u have any kind of problem it will be simple to findout which cylinder is giving you issues. :lol:
im thinking i may have to get myself a setup like this. mine isnt working out to well for me... i hate that stock carb :evil:

liking the individual filter setup

where'd you find the pic of the single filter? that manifold doesn't look near as good as the ones you had made.

i think it was a ford fiesta mkI in the UK...

anyway got a make shift cable on it and took it for a spin around the block... pulled well to 6500 rpm but I didn’t take it any further as it is a used old motor with no mods other than a header... still need to fine tune it but it pulls off the line good and smokes the tires well for a stock motor... will play with it some more and give you updates... I have the air filters on order and hope to be here soon... still want to refine the throttle cable as I don’t like the way it looks and feels

right now i can sell the intakes but dont have a kit together... the intakes are $375 but if i get an order of 5 or more i can get them made for $325 each... plus shipping... i have a guy in the UK making them for me as he has been doing these r1 conversions on cars for over 5 years now and really knows how to make a great intake...

soon i hope to try to set up the EDIS and get rid of the dizzy altogether, but first want to get these right so i know all the setting and tweaks for them... will also offer a rebuild service for your R1 carbs if needed and will jet and set them at that time for customer that want that service...

i do have a guy in Australia that want 1 or 2 for his geminis so let me know if anyone else wants one...

intake and carbs would run about the same as a new offy and new 32/36 weber maybe less depending on the price you get the carbs for.. seen then go from $25 to $199 a set. this just gives people another choice that they never had before..
