Manifold for a 2.5?

After giving it much thought, I've decided to keep my Sidekick as stock as possible(Big thanks to DaddyJohn). The one thing I would love to change and get rid of, however, it's the flo jet. God I absolutely hate that thing with a passion. The only problem is, I can't imagine how to hook another carburetor with my limited welding skills. You see, my welds smell like bacon. I'm a terrible cook. But other than that, I don't even know what kind of carburetor to slap on it. I heard that that those motorized bike carburetors work, but that seems like an old wives tale. In addition, that requires welding skills(see cooking ability). Any help?
