I thought this was a DeLorean invention too, but was talking to a friend 
who works on other Vee engines and referred to it. It's not something 
"we" made up...

You should not have a rubber hose resting on any surface if you can 
avoid it... and the valley is hardly smooth. You run the risk of it 
wearing through at some point. You will probably argue that you can keep 
checking it on your easy-to-remove intake manifold. I would point out 
that with a hard pipe, you don't have to.

Converting a standard DeLorean engine to carbs will give simplicity, but 
is not suitable if running ca catalyst, will provide a small performance 
iprovement, but also worse fuel economy...

These are facts too
