4150 1:1 link

Anyone ever used a 1:1 link for the mechanical secondaries? I'm thinking about one for the turbocharged maverick. Any good for the street?

I've got an old 660 center squirter that has 1:1 linkage. It sucks on the street. The throttle doesn't feel smooth. I suppose I could fool around with it and get it smoother, but I don't feel like it's worth messing with. It also uses twice as much gas since it runs on all 4 barrels ALL on the time. It's NOT a good street carb!
