4 speed carb will work better in some cases as i have observed. But on a stock 5 speed engine it's better to have the 5 speed carb.
For the 4 speed head to work on a 5 speed barrel get it milled and re profiled. 4 speed head on a 5 speed barrel will give very poor compression ratio and thus poor performance.

Barrel also means the cylinder head. i.e. within which the piston means.

Not sure how this helps in RXG topic though.

ACtually the RXG and 4sp carb is a 4TL4 00 which has a #165 main jets. And the actualy RX135 5 sp carb is 4TL4 20 with a #135 main jet. So bigger jets are not the issue . The 5sp carb has a oval bore compared to round ones fro the 4speeds.
Its a pain to get original parts for the 5sp and ofc ...many ppl have got a 5th cog mod .
