I like the DGVs too. Could almost fit one on the SC.
What I have wanted to do to the TC is fit DCOEs. Reckon it would work
If I can find a DCOE manifold that gets somewhere near the 45 degree angle
of the TC head I'd go that way, and make an adapter plate. So far no go.
I had a similar experience with the Colortune, but in the end it turned out
that I couldn't get the perfect color because the carb was defective and not
able to get the mixture correct (leaks on the far side of the jet or
whatever). Also, on some engines there is always one cylinder which actually
can't be set the same as the others because of the design of the intake
manifold or the way it enters the chamber. I don't remember if it was the TC
or one of my old MGs, but the cylinder closest to the firewall was always
off. Of course, the best thing I ever did to the MGB was to install a
Weber DGV. Transformed the car.
The Gunson CO meter only measures CO (as the name implies). When I was
to get my SD1 through inspection, it was easy to dial in the CO, but
I did, the NO2 (?) would go out of tolerance on the shop's emissions
equipment. There's a tradeoff on that adjustment, as well.
