Thats really what i'm looking for, do you have any more information on that?

Go to Foley's website. You are looking for a Zenith carbuerator. It is listed as a Universal PN U288482.

How is a downdraft carb a "bolt on" to an updraft manifold?

That is one of the things I want to see, if it had a big U bend in it it would likely be worse than the updraft, but the kit may also come with a new manifold?? Not likely but worth looking in to.

I agree that in most applications the A-4 is probably more power than can be practically applied anyway. I would opt for increase reliability and smooth operation.
