Default Dual Holley Bug Spray setup?

Ok, so it looks like I'm ditching my single 48 IDA in favor of something cheaper and easier to deal with. So, I have a pair of manifolds, and a Holley Bug Spray. I absolutely loved the single Bug Spray setup on my 1600, wondering how the dual setup is? It would be nice, all I'd have to buy is one more carb. I've seen the dual setups here and there, anyone ever run one?

ive never run a setup like that. . but i kinda see this along the same lines as me running my dual zeniths. awesome carbs for a single setup. but since i scored the duals. why not run them?? i say go for it. i especially dig the old school factor of them.

jets should be easy to come by, should be simple enough to tune and dial in A/F ratio. and the coolness factor, well, it would have it. DO IT!!!!

the first could be leaned out a bit, and the second left alone or slightly leaned, run them on a progressive throttle setup. let the lean one come in first, and at 50+ % throttle, the second one could take over.... minding your vacuum related accessories were accounted for.. cause with twin carbs on same mani, it splits the signal to the vac. accys. like your advance pot.

also, your larger carb would be without choke horn. i bet it would work fine! i still have yet to acquire some Rochester B's and try them out... i have a fresh 1500 I wanna use for a guinea pig and try it out on it.... super cheap budget carb setup.

I had an old gasser bug, that the p/o tried dual bugspays. I'm not sure of the outcome.
I guess you could use DCNF manifolds. Give it a try!

I have an old tuning book with a chart in it that compares the different carb combos. I think It shows the dual BugSprays in one of the charts. I'll dig around and see what I can find.

Yeah, I'm just tired of seeing the same old Webers everywhere. I am really itching to try some different setups. I remember the Holleys and Zeniths being about as simple as you can get. I figure the Holleys flow about 300 cfm if I remember correctly, so 600 cfm on my 2180 should be adequate. Maybe not as hardcore as a pair of 48s, but who the hell can afford shit nowadays.

The 2110 Holley flows 300cfm so the 2100 series(200 cfm)should work ok as duals. I'm thinking about doing the same thing because I have a 2100 on a 1835 and think it could pull more carb. Problem is I don't have a 2110 but I do have a good spare 2100. In the old "how to hotrod vw" book they show a dyno pull with two 2100 holleys and it's as good as the dual solex's

I think my motor can use as much carb as I can give it. It's a 2180 Scat Volkstroker with CB Eliminator 2000 heads and a pretty ballsy Web-Cam. I have the bottom end to withstand a bunch of carb. I think I'll try out the 2100s since I have one already, and bump it up to 2110s if I think it can use more.

Well, went and scored a pair of 2110s and a pair of 32NDIX manifolds. The manifolds are close, gonna have to elongate the mounting holes on the carbs a tiny bit to get 'em to bolt on, but they look like they'll work. Gotta work on a nice homemade linkage next. Updates as I go!

I picked up a pair of dual Bugsprays with manifolds at a swap meet this past Spring. Were run on a drag Ghia. Came with no linkages though. Gotta figure out what to do there.

Claude's Buggies used to sell a dual progressive set up. It was cool looking and could run a mild 1835 pretty well.
