Throttle linkage would be a nightmare on that intake, but MAN that's cool!

The adapter sounds like a good idea but after seeing the indy modman I think I will go with that, however this adapter sounds like a genius idea. By the sound of it there is probably no off the shelf stuff for a 6x1 setup but we don't mind 3x2. I should probably point out that this 401 is actually a bored out 390 (not sure if that changes any factors). I am into the modman and will probably go with that! The project actually hasn't started yet but my son and I love to look as far ahead as we can with this stuff. If anyone knows of a 6x1 carb idea we would love to hear it!

Short deck 390 (1969) has a slightly narrower intake, so you need a 67-69 intake or have to modify a later one slightly to make it fit. If it's a 1970 390, then it is the same as all of the later motors.

If there was enough room, three AFB's would be a nice "6 pack".

I laid it out in Master cam but there is not enough room under the hood.

But with a custom manifold it could be done with only a little creativity....

This project is a long way out, I don't plan on buying the manifold for quite a while. I like the idea but the modman comes with a full kit of carbs and the linkage so it's not that much more money. Like I said though, I am still looking for as many ideas I can get.
