Not much different then any other TaG or ICC engine carb set up with a forward facing Air Box.

One would just richen the carb a little to compensate for the added air flow and ajust by EGT.

I like see temperatures of 1,000  to 1,200 degrees  at the end of the longest straight with the Honda engine

I’m an Engine Tuner / Mecanic and have built a lot of of my own equipment which can be quicklly moved from machine to machine to asist in Dailing in an engine
