Looks like it has short runners and a large plenum.

That is really a cool intake with 3 2's....the linkage should be interesting to figure out. I would purchase one if made available.

I can't remember where I got this pic, (would give credit if could remember) but I want to do this someday! I even have three aluminum intakes sitting waiting until I can find a talented enough person to take on the project!

Nice...I really wanted to do a similar setup on my Matador with CAN-AM style staggered velocity stacks through the hood.

Cool cut and graft job.... Looks like a home brew pan with grafted Mopar setup runners.

Seen a full setup from an old 70s car mag. It was in an AMC Hornet or Grem. Just remember some AMC logos

My uncle had many from late 60s to early 70s when he did power boat racing. I hated noise from shop work so I did not stick around, let alone he was not so keen on having a kid be around active machinery.
