my question is what type of carburators are those?
are they real or just fictional?
it only matter cause i dont want fake parts on this car.
also, i wanted to do some searching but i have no idea what these are called or where to find info on them. i was on google for hours trying to mix and match key words but i have nothing to show for it.
the car is a masito so its kinda to scale 1/24 that will recieve this engine.

They LOOK like Webber Side Draft Carbs, The kind of intake manifold that they ran on the Corvette SS models at Sebring back inthe 60's. I'm sure the guys'll know for sure!
ill do a search on Webber Side Draft Carbs
hmm, did some research and i see older then the muscle car era cars and even old toyotas.
would this application make sense for a 67-present after market power adder?

What you see are actually 4 carbs. The venturis are paired into one carb with the float bowls, etc. in the middle. This arrangement worked very well for road racing applications.
The purple and silver thing the carbs are sitting on look like the cylinder heads for some kind of overhead cam V-8 engine. What kind, I couldn't tell you.

As they are one of the best-known vendors of Weber carbs and related stuff, www.inglese.com has a lot of good DCOE reference pics:

I'm lookin at it right now, and it's got 4 vertically mounted Webers, with 3 crankcase breather tubes, between the carbs,in the valley cover. It has 2 distinct cam covers over each bank of cylinders, and the cover blurb say's"455 Olds DOHC Street Hemi" The engine that rluck is showin doesn't look ANYTHING like this monster!
