The dual Solexs are good carbs. I would stay away from the 009, 
but others may have better suggestions. Consider buying this book:

How to Hotrod Volkswagen Engines
by Bill Fisher
published by H. P. Books, Tucson, AZ, 1970
ISBN 0-912656-03-4
(excellent book, well written and researched)

It has most of the answers you need, but you will have to spend 
some time with it. It's a really good book which I recommend to 
anyone who wants to get more power/reliability out of their engine.

The wide variety of literature available from Gene Berg can also be 
very enlightning.

Keep in mind that a 1700 is only a ~6% increase over a 1600. In 
itself this is not likely to be noticable.
