The only accurate information of this conversion is ...within this thread..
Aside from myself, none but one have put a coolant chamber on a Empi plenum to heat it as Tom directs.

i have to agree tho, there are great merits to working with or from a baseline setup of knowns, that ideally might just require some minor tweaking, for various applications, engine sizes etc..
if it can't be presented and done easily and quick, it's nothing more than a fringe option for the few,
too many possible can of worms scenarios can easily come into the picture, when/if only having one place or person to go to, folks like options,
a 124 page thread alone, is a huge problem in itself, especially where the guiding info seems to come mostly from one person, as far as presenting scc as a viable option to others,
people working together on a goal, trumps an 'it's like this' one man show 124 page thread in a forum, end of story, and that's where all or most of the action has gone, many new ideas and working possibilities have come forward from this approach,
if scc was such an easy or even viable option to stock carbs even today, there would be a ton out there, humming with no issues,
the message for new folks is do your research!! prior to committing to any scc, you can easily end up spending a good chunk of change and end with nagging ongoing issues,
whereas there are pros out there, who know what they are doing & in the biz of rebuilding stock carbs, ending up with no issues, so eitherway, inform yourself before making a decision and spending money,
it's a fringe thing, but yes, scc can be a wonderful option for some folks, mostly those who can do it on their own
so my take is yes, cm85 was a major force in the serious beginnings of scc, but other folks have since taken off with it, giving it a much wider appeal with way more options and possibilities than there were before
and yes to each their own
