Yep the Holley the Judsons came with are a pitiful little one barrel, non adjustable carb, I think I remember someone saying that they had used a SU on one before, and i sure that would require some sort of adapter. We did a hot rod 948 (I know those two things put in same sentence is a chuckle, hot rod 948 ) anyway it was built for a vintage Sherrock S/C and those use a single H6 carbs, here's a pic of it.

I came across this 'adapter' on eBay a while back.

It is no longer listed but may serve to inspire?

Herb, you said a mouthful there, LOL, here's a view that show just how much real estate this charger takes up, but all fit under the bonnet of Bugeye Sprite. The car this engine is going is clone of a factory works rally aluminum bodied Mark 1 Sprite. They were actually two of these works cars, one blown, one normally aspirated, and my customer is cloning both cars, so we just finished the normally aspirated motor, it is 948 taken to FIA 1000cc rules. These cars were rebodied in the UK in aluminum, they have a more laid back windscreen rake than your normal Bugeye, and they have custom aluminum hard-top, and custom made side curtains. The final restorations are being done by Skunk River Restorations in Iowa, which is a awesome restoration shop. I feel very honored to be fortunate enough to work on such projects.
