If I end up using this carb, I'm thinking of using a carb hat with a custom-made intake (probably cold air) with some sort of a provision where a hose from this inlet can be hooked up to it. What are your thoughts on this?

Would the accelerator spring be the one circled in yellow in the image below? What is the proper setting for it, or does it vary depending on the set up?
