Help with carb spacers

I have an Autolite 4100 carb and I'd like to know what spacer would be recommend to use with it?
Also, is there any advantage to using 2" over 1" and tapered bores versus non?
Much thanks,

Chris

Chris, I think you'll find that this is a purely experimental exercise that may or may not improve power.

Every specific engine buildup/combination will like something different. There is no way of knowing.
