You could buy it over the counter, of course, it was already available as an add-on.

Here are some pics of my dual carb set up. I'm running two Holley 4160 600cfm carbs. I had to mount them backwards in order to clear my distributor. This in turn, put my linkage on the driver side. I run the back one progressive, it doesn't start to open until the gas pedal is pressed at about 25% and when the gas is fully pressed down, both carbs are wide open. The Holleys are vacuum secondary's with electric chokes. I ran an equalizer tube from both vacuum canisters (if you zoom in to the pic, you can see the tube). This is my daily driver and only car that I've owned for almost eight years. Gas mileage is ok (as long as I don't drive like a jackass), 12-13 city and 18-20 highway (5 speed TKO-600). I run the back carb with the idle screws a bit richer because I don't want to lean out cylinders 4 and 8.

And....don't pick on my zip ties....I own stock in that company (I don't, but I should).
