Dyers used a 4 barrel for the v6-71 as bob said . I ran one with 11lbs boost worked good. the intakes you said will work . The only thing I would think when you tighten it down be careful not to distort since the bolts go down at an angle. as far as coverting to gas, not hard to do, follow a few simple rules , get the right bearings and you will be good to go. this isn't rocket science and teenagers were doing this in the 50's
