duratec with carburators

does anyone have experience with this? I have a 2.5 block with crank conrod and pistons 1:12 compression sitting in the garage  and would like to make a  carb version out of it. What cams? is there a possibility to drive a distributor for the ignition ets.? thks Hanns Per
PS: or is this a stupid idea?

Raceline does a manifold to suits DCOE carbs, you can use whatever cam you want and ign need to be 3D but apart from the TPS everything is already on the engine. For track use there won't be too much difference with a fuel injected engine.

Forgot to say that you will need plugs where once the injectors where or just leave them in place. 20 years ago there would be plenty of advice on non original modifications but these day's are long gone afraid.

Haven't done it on a Duratec myself but have on other engines.  Injector blanks are easy to make on a lathe, I've made quite a few of these for Duratecs.  Just a small 'top hat' piece of aluminium with a groove for an O-ring.  For the ignition it's way easier than finding ways to drive a dizzy.  Do a quick google for Megajolt.  Other alternatives are available but this works fine and is very well priced.  You can use it to drive your current ignition components.
