Would using twin cannon exhaust make setting up twin carbs easier than using a 4 into 1 exhaust?

Depends on the cannons,  they strangled my engine so any carb setup a bit of a waste of time

Balancing carbs relies on vacuum at the carb so exhaust should make little difference so long as it's a good one

I'd do it with whatever exhaust setup is going to be on there in use

Twin cannons or 4 into 1 same carb setting principal however some cannons foul twin carbs

You can listen to each cannon to adjust each mixture and balance each carb tick-over setting, so much easier for basic settings  ;-)up

Completely agree IF they aren't throttling the engine. Mine blew the baffles out of cannons then ran a lot better if a tad noisy  ;D
