The more you get into it the more you might want to start saving for an EFI or TBI setup.
Also, little tricks will help the carb problems. adjustable fuel pressure regulator, flipping the carb, spring loaded seats, etc.
Just because you have a carb doesn't mean you can't go vertical. I have plenty of friends that loose oil pressure before they loose fuel pressure with carbs
