Like I said, get three 2300 2 bbls and three front bowls from the 1850 series and you can build your own carbs. Only trick is milling the air horn to a half moon.
Can you go into the details for us?
Also can someone go into the details of swapping the vacuum set-up to a manual linkage?
I also found this post on the Corvette Forum about Tri-power performance compared to a modern single 4 bbl set up.
Corvette Enthusiast did an 11.5:1 489 buildup using AFR 315 CNC heads. (May 2006) They tested 3 induction systems: Holley Strip Dominator 4150; Edelbrock RPM Air Gap and a modified 67 Tripower. The 4-bbl intakes were tested with a Holley 950 HP carburetor. The results were impressive:
RPM Air Gap w/Holley HP 950: 643 HP @ 6400; 594 lb-ft @ 5100
Vic Jr. w/ Holley HP 950: 641 HP @ 6400; 603 lb-ft @ 5100 Tripower: 655 HP @ 6200; 591 lb-ft @ 5100
I recall typing up a detailed blueprint and posting it here soemwhere, but it was probably deemed "Chevelle irrelevant" and not archived. I'll try some searches. Apologize, but I simply dont have the spare time to write it up again right now.

Any idea what you may have called it? I will ask Al to help us find it.
For what it is worth, I just missed out on a 69 3 x 2 manifold last weekend by 5 minutes. The seller sold it for $750.00. Also included a original appearing air cleaner lid and base. I posted it in whats it worth.

I didnt read through this whole thread yet, but saw where someone had mentioned the Barry Grant Six Shooter system...STAY AWAY FROM THAT PIECE OF JUNK!!!!! It is the wost quality I have seen....bad finish, horrible fitment...We sent ours back and checked with Jegs to pull a few from there shelf to see if it was the same, sure enough...P O S !!! They sent back there whole stock on them as well. I have some pictures I will post up later....stay away!!!! Barrys quality went to ****.
Here is a good company to check...however the wait time may be awhile
Looks like the carbs are too close together to use a metering block on the rear carb, is this correct? Or can you squeeze it in there?
I don't believe it will fit, the carbs are real close together.
On a side note, the Mopar six-pack air cleaner will fit the Chevy setup (& vice versa). Maybe ole Mopar did a little copying back then? The only other difference is the fuel lines are on the passengers side. Otherwise the Mopar carbs will work.
