Does anyone have a suggestion for an optimum size/length of the Velocity stacks to be used for the twin DHLA 40 carburetor on a stock motor for optimum performance? i have seen 20mm stacks all the way to 150mm. What is best and where is a good source. Thanks to all.

I would go with the stock length, roughly 40mm. This is what Lotus put on them in combination with their airbox, and should be a good match to the power band.

These are for the DRLA but only need the holes modified to fit.
