It can be done.
They are not black art, nor a magic bullet. You won't double your power or do 100 MPG with them.
And they won't be cheaper than carbs that were designed to go on a car engine either.

Of course this is simplistic and ignoring idle requirements, but you get the idea.

I know there is a manifold to accept a pair of DCOEs but they are rare here in this US because the carbs interfer with the brake booster and master cylinder being our cars are left hand drive. But I think a single carb would clear the braking system.
