Rays are setup sideways on a dual carb tunnel on the Moo boat.

Mine are inline, Jeremy.

I think Boost is going to be running Quick Fuel double pumpers, vs my singles. I don't think it's possible to run them inline like mine are, although I thought it impossible to do mine at first, and I did it anyhow. Can't see doubles ever fitting physically inline on any TR I have ever seen, but I've been proven wrong before, and often, by this group. (My 4160 single pumpers only have metering blocks on their primaries, which allowed the clearance to mount them and run the traverse linkage across for the throttle).

If I ever do it again though, with double pumpers, I'd probably either run a 4 port regulator or a log to 2 dual ports mounted to the front of the intake manifold, and run bent stainless lines from the reg(s) to the carbs versus braided. Braided looks cool, but won't last (Look at the pics of it in my Green Sleek), PITA to keep it bright and shiney, for one, and eventually, they WILL leak.

No pics of what my brain is envisioning for it though, that I have found. Everyone runs Braided.

Just my .02 which probably isn't even worth that.

   Good post Ray ;D well thought out sounds like you been doing some research :thumbup: I could just easily throw something together put just cant get my self to do it :banghead:  thinking of going with the stainless hard lines that the blower cards use clean and simple, just don't know if the 2 port regulator  I already have will flow enough fuel through to the dual inlet carbs, :banghead:

I would go 4 port, were it me Brian. But that is assuming a lot of things. If I already had a couple 2 ports, i'd go the other way. But if you want the cleanest install, I'd mount a 4 port right under the front carb at the front of the engine, then (Me being me, and knowing that)  waste about 10 or more feet of stainless tubing getting the bends and flares right. But that's me.

You've not skimped at ALL on your boat and it shows it. I know where you'll go!
