There are a number of variations on the DCOE carb. The 6000 has the standard 3 progression holes whilst the 6200 has 4. we do find that the 4 hole carb is better for most applications and the price is the same for both variants.
I specifically stated in my question that it was for use on an 8v TC 2 litre Lancia, but no specific recommendation was forthcoming. Have any forum members any comments to make on suitability for my application? I'm currently gathering the parts needed to upgrade my 2 litre TC to Guy's 'fast road tune' specification; standard cams, twin DCOE 45 carbs (36mm choke) with manifold to suit, ported head, balanced crank/flywheel. approx 9.3:1 CR.
I need to make a purchase before 4th January to miss the VAT hike, so any guidance is welcome.

Solution is to drill a 4th hole under the butterfly's. I did it for a friend recently and his runs better, but i have not done mine yet as im thinking of throttle body injection now.
Bottom line: 4 hole prog circuit for Fiats and Alfas.

There are more causes for hesitation (flat spot) than merely the progression drillings, I would not place much stock on how many there were, seriously...
