Everyone knows those are trick questions and here are your answers,

 

A) It's easy not to check out a hot chick when your gay or dead.

 

B ) Walking on water to Japan is not a problem if your God.

 

C) Finding Unicorns to ride anywhere is easy after taking a hit of LSD.

 

D) If you just...maybe if you...well, fuck, I got nothing...

In the interest of tractability and torque, we have elected to ditch the dual side draft idea for something "better". So it's back to Weber 38/38 "outlaw" carb we used to run. Chuck at Left Coast did me a solid and sold me his old intake for it...

Need to get it cleaned up, all the smog crap off of it, put a Weber adapter plate on it, then a lick of paint and she'll be good...

Cause it will look good until the dirt falls off.

 

No, it will look like a painted manifold, AKA Crap, until the dirt falls off... which would be patches of better looking-ness.

Got a weber adapter and a 32/36. Gave it a test fit, which got Tim's gears turning...

So now the thought is to use that carb hat we bought for an abandoned blow through turbo project for a "snorkel" of sorts...

Plan is to go from there, through the (enlarged) hole where the wiper motor went, then up through and out of the cowl, into a weather resistant filter/hat sort of thing so it sucks air from outside of the car...

 

Something akin to what the off road guys do...

Also, after discussing why I oppose painted manifolds (I just do, and... uh, your face is a painted manifold!), I was told to "Suck it up snowflake!" and was convinced that a coat of aluminum-colored paint will be just fine.  So I think I will allow John to paint the manifold black after all.

Wait, what?  :rofl:

 

Yeah, so while typing my bit, I got to thinking about some of those Edelbrock V8 maniflods I've seen on Summit and thought, "Those black maniflods look pretty cool, I guess."

I picked up some silver caliper paint that looks pretty metal. :devil:

 

Should last a while on my intake parts. 

 

Krylon makes a nice paint called "Dull Aluminum". And as the name would imply, it looks like freshly cast aluminum. 

 

 

Bead blasted on the right, painted on the left:
