I'd suggest getting a bead welded around the top too to keep them in situ.

I ran zx carbs on my c20xe and they were pretty good and reliable I did have one that the float stuck open but stopped down and cleaned and were fine again . I jetted them to 1.8mm and they were pretty much spot on on the rolling road for fueling.

Only problem you might have is keeping the hoses on as the runners are going straight to the carb throats.
Make sure you use special narrow jubilee clips on the carbs as normal size will try and slip off.
