yeah that's what I have ,but have read somewhere that these carbs are designed to run 1 throttle body per cylinder. Looking at that you would think that the centre 2 cylinders are going to starve the others for fuel though they obviously don`t all open at once. . Lynx got sold to Webber performance in Victoria  and I see they don't advertise these manifolds any more .

I dont think it would matter if its sized and jetted correctly,  the carb doesnt care how many cylinders it is feeding, it just puts 'x' amount of fuel into the air that passes through it and the manifold delivers that mix to the cylinder

Read somewhere that Lynx used different IDs in the runners to balance flow, also read on an Aussie forum that it didn't work and a stock carb gave better results lol

Thanks for the feed back crew. I only bought it for a novelty set up and I have a 34mm weber off a ford XF falcon that may get a run 1 day.

regards Baz
