I admit to no knowing anything about converting MC ITB's (triumph or otherwise) for use other than their designed intention. But, if you can't adjust the balance in each throttle you are leaving far...

It is not at all difficult to use MAP with ITBs. All you need is a simple manifold to balance the signal. For a race engine it is not required as there is very little part throttle operation. But...
