Someone on here has done it though, so worth have a look around.
Much easier to get hold of a set of twin HS4 carbs which will be perfect for your engine.

They're mg carbs so you can find a set of twins already build, but i have no idea of them in a mini. They should be the same of HIF38s, but dont quote me on that.

HIF38 is the metric version. HIF38's can be used as twins easily enough although the chokes can't be directly linked unless you can get hold of an RH body. Alternatively it's not too difficult to make up a split choke cable to connect to both. The HIF38 and HIF44 carbs have a bearing that the dashpot piston rides in, making its action smoother than the earlier HS type cabs.
Twins will look the part but probably not perform much better than your HIF44! Remember only one inlet valve is open at a time, so each cylinder will be exposed to a 38mm/1 1/2" or a 44mm carburettor at a time. You would need a well designed manifold to get the best from twins, and the typical log type manifold with that gaping big balance tube disrupting flow is not the best option.
