I have one of these kits, and I was intending to copy the engine for other uses. But it is clear from the photos that this kit engine is way too narrow, much like the seats. So I glued mine together and filled it with Bondo so I can split and widen it allowing my Lamborghini Webers to fit. May be a Chevy SB intake manifold would work . . . ? Thanks for the footnote, Mr. Engwer! And I should have said before, beautiful job on the body and paint, Mr. Bacon!
