Default Old Animal carb (Walbro pz22?) on Predator 212?

Hey guys, after my mishap with my animal, I'm currently running a Predator 212, until I get the animal rebuilt.

I like the performance I'm getting from the predator, but I hate the carb.

Is there any way to mount the old Animal carb (Walbro pz22?) to the predator 212 engine? I'm assuming I'll need some sort of manifold like this:

Well, you should definitely remove the governor if you haven't already, since the animal carb is a direct throttle cable.
As for manifolds, I'm sure someone can help.

If you have the skills build your own... Or you could redneck something together that may work... consider hacking the flange from a Briggs runner and using a hose and clamps to attach it to another hacked part of runner coming off the predator engine... Think out of the box or have a buddy cut some tube and weld you a custom built intake.
This ain't rocket science boys!!!
