The thing is that an individual barrel for each cylinder makes for wicked throttle response. On an I-6 it also means equal mixture in all cylinders. A fellow AMC guy put three 2V side draft Webers on his 232 six and was VERY impressed with it. The only other thing you can do that comes close is port injection with an injector at each cylinder. That solves the mixture problem, but still doesn't have the throttle response of individual barrels on short runners. You wouldn't think that motorcycle carbs would be big enough, but they are (think 6 carbs from a four cylinder 1000 cc or larger bike). The bike engine turns a whole heck of a lot more rpm than a car engine, so needs to flow a lot more cfm.

fordss, here are some websites devoted to inline engines and performance parts:

Clifford Performance :: Make 6 = 8

Inliners International devoted to all Inline powered vehicles

www.hotsixes.com/index

Autowerks - Home

I realize that you're not trying to build anything radical, but since you're interested in the 292 Chevy 6, you might enjoy seeing some videos and the website for the "Mighty 6", a 1936 Chevrolet pickup with a 292 bored .060" to 301CI.

A 4V and intake will help a lot. On the AMC 258 no more than 500 cfm is recommended. On the 292 a 600 cfm might work fine. A 600 will work on an AMC 258, but it's a bit much for a mild engine. It will load up a bit at idle and low speeds. For a full race engine a 600 on a 258 is workable. For a good compromise between economy and power the Jeep guys like the Holley 390. The Truck Avenger 470 is a popular power carb for the 258, just under 500 cfm. That might prove a good economy/power balance for the 292.

If you're handy with a welder it wouldn't be hard to make a steel intake for three side draft webers or motorcycle carbs. The cost of the carbs could get to be a bit much though!
