That is one good looking engine.
As far as carbs go, you can fit two Carter AFBs fore-and-aft where you'll never get two Holleys to go. Somebody who deals in superchargers makes a manifold that will allow you to put two Holley carbs on top of a Jimmy blower. The name of the manufacturer escapes me at the moment; it looked like a big "Y."
Is it a problem to run Holley carbs when they're sitting sideways?
