Interesting point but I'm not convinced. For example all the big and highly
tuned A-series engine make more power (peak power I guess) on a 45DCOE than
than a single HIF44. Also if the single carb idea worked for high rpm, high
power A-series engines than the racers would all be using a 48 or 53 DCO
modified for single barrel operation.
