They're CVR carbs from a ZX9R, Keihin made them. and For my manifold I'm using a piece of 3/8" plate and 1 3/4" exhaust pipe. I don't have TIG equipment so I have to use steel.

Steel works but you can usally do a bolt on system.

Use a manifold like these to get the carb as close to the valve as possible. It will give you the best performance for street.

Intake Manifold & Reed Valve_Parts by Type(Engine Parts)_Youngfar Partsmotorcycle parts,scooter parts,Chinese motorcycle parts,China motorcycle parts,Keeway parts,Qianjiang parts,motorcycle accessories,motorcycle performance parts

You can usally buy them from ebay cheap.

Then just use a plate of aluminum and bolt it flat to the motor then drill and tap little port work and your driving.

I'm going to try and set the intake runner length as close to the ideal length as I can- maybe a hair longer since it is on the street. That's secondary right now to me getting it sorted out first with TFI and the edelbrock carb, then EDIS, then the bike carbs.

I'm also in the middle of painting the 280z and the Bobcat too- a LOT on my plate.
