    I've never seen either done to the Z22SE - I'm not too sure it there is enough room between the head and the rad to squeeze either in.

    Carbs would be an interesting option on that engine.

    But like Geoff said it would surley be too tight.

    That is, as you say, true - but you've still go the depth of the manifold and Tb's to contend woth and it's be difficult to shorten those

    I nominate Mr Ratman5door, as the AS guinea pig in trynig todo this mod - go to it

    Just a thought - with TB's you'd have to get round the drive by wire throttle, which might prove difficult.

    Carbs tho, might be an easier way forward.
