It still doesn't beat an injection system.

I think we all might know that - please re-read the original question.....

The only info I've been able to get on this system so far is that it flows
850cfm and is about half the price of a GRA twin set-up which should make
it about $800ish(If you supply a Holley throttle plate, it's cheaper again
- I'm guessing the price includes converter, solenoid and plumbing though
not sure ).
What I'd like to do, if possible, is just replace my GRA mixers with
something that has a more traditional 4 barrel appearance but mostly for
ease of access to valve gear as the GRA system has to be removed just to
get a rocker cover off, it's a serious PITA!
Any suggestions for a mixer that I might be able to use(that flows at
least 550-600cfm) while preferably keeping as much of the existing
plumbing, and converter(s), which are B2's?

The techno carb system on my Stato will answer all your dreams ,and
leave that crappy GRA for dead (One of the top flow benches in
Australia , couldnt get more than 500 CFM out of the 2 biggest GRA
throttle bodies at 5 ins )GRA quoted CFM is at 28 Ins, who the bloody
hell runs at 28 ins ? The techno's top end will blow you away if you
maintain the AFR over 3500 ,just swap one of your B'2s for a possibly
an AIROD a40 super . or like me try and find a bigger converter that
will hang in there !!!!!!!
