Slides will work just fine. Another problem people have when trying to run ITB's (slides included) on the street is that the throttle is 1:1 with the gas pedal. A cam follower needs to be used so the part throttle is more gradual. Meaning when all 6 ITBs are opening at the same part throttle position as the gas pedal was with a single throttlebody the acceleration curve is too touchy. By using a cam follower linkage, a custom cam can be made to increase or decrease the duration of the throttle. This would allow the engine to have good low speed drivability by having a moderate actuation of the ITB's from idle to the desired point.
