The linkage is the only thing different.

Given the choice, I'd choose inline. Other than jet changes being harder, getting them to work correctly seems much easier.

I have no experience with dual carbs on a tunnel ram... but curious, other than linkage - why would it even matter?

I'd rather be a fool who is loyal to his friends than a POS that jumps ship to save face. We were wrong in the end, but nobody can ever call us disloyal. I can live with that.

Controlling the float bowls is the problem.

With center hung bowls, they do make wedge shaped floats. They still only work so-so. I hear that some custom builders make some weighted floats that help.

Carbs with side hung floats don't have any options. Plus, the primary and secondary floats are hung on opposite sides. Doesn't sound very good when all the fuel rushes back during acceleration.
