ok i have been down in the building area lately .. so i had an idea . i had an old 71 prepainted duster half built. an i wanted to build a bad street car, like an et street , with modern drag whells , m/t et streets, an a nasty 340,,

well the prob is there are no good 340 performance parts .. so i made my own..

i call it the duster kit cuz i made it only for my duster..

first i made a set of aftermarket aluminum valve covers.. an a high rise air gap intake ..

then i got a set of 5 ring drag rims , but they were front only .. so i added a deep ring an made a set of big an littles. oh the intake is a 2 peice ,

Nice work !! That intake looks great !!!

How are the headers ; underchassis or fenderwell ?

Ever thought about making a casting of the belt and pulleys arrangement from the Street Machine version of the same AMT '71 Duster ??? If you ever do , mark me down on your list , for a few sets of 'em !

Hey Davin, could you give a little more insight on how you made the intake? I have been looking for an intake similar to this one for my '68 Dart and I lack the skills to make something like that. Overall it looks killer man.

thanks man , the headers are underchassis , i made them as close to a set of hookers . an yes the center steering link goes threw 3 of the tubes on the drivers side an hang down like the real ones ..

im pretty sure i got the belt set, if you want to cast it

that is from the 340 with the shortened viper style intake right?

and are you selling the rims or are they just for private use ?

What did you make the headers out of?

They look really good, i have Hooker Super Comps. on my 1:1 Duster and yours are very similar to them!

Even the tube on the driver side that goes right across the spark plugs and makes them a real joy to change!

It's all about the scorched paint on the left (passenger side) shear panel (inner fenderwell) of the big block A bodies !

From a A-body guy. You did a exceptional job. Now, are they going into production?
