It just looked like those 4 carbs might want to suck more air than can pass through that single smallish inlet at WOT. That said I am not an engineer nor do I play one on tv
They're about 1" carbs, and the inlet is 2" pipe so the area is about the same.

According to a couple of online things, the inlet should flow enough air for a bit under 240hp.

Yup. 4 cylinters, 4 stroke. Unless I put in a really goofy camshaft.
