3.4 with carbs at 6000'

I'm going to upgrade my Euro 3.2 to 3.4 10.3:1 with PMOs. I live at 6500' and am wondering if carbs are a practical induction solution at this altitude. The car is not driven in winter so cold air temps are not are a concern. I'd love to hear about driveability from 3.4 PMO street conversionists, at any altitude.
Thanks

Maybe ACKIWI is talking about revs?...

What size PMO's? I had 46s on a 3.0 and 50s on a 3.6. Both ran great on track and street.

Jo'burg is around that altitude as well.

I've found that carbs are sensitive when changing altitude and that CIS is forgiving.
