Default carb/ F.I. conversion question

I've changed out the carb on 0-360 (180hp) for vertical updraft fuel injection. I'm about to fab the airbox/filter components and have received Van's airbox kit made for carbs.

Can anyone give me the vertical dimension of their carb (I don't have it anymore) from the top mounting flange to the bottom flange? I want to know if I have to allow for a difference in height when following the plans for the Van's ram air filter box. I seem to recall a spacer has been required for others.

Thanks

Bevan

Don,
Would you mind adding the lengths of your various Airflow Performance Servos to this thread? What is the length of an MA4 [320] carb?
