my good buddy, Dan Turner, is building a rad little Tupperware 32 3 window. he had it running (but not quite "done) with full fenders and a SBC and auto trans. but then he scored a nice running 331 HEMI from our buddy Dave "Bubbles" Shuten. after that the fenders came off, the SBC and auto trans came out and in went the HEMI and a 4 speed. while the HEMI is an impressive looking motor all on it's own the factory single two barrel carb leaves you feeling a little cheated. that is what Dan thought anyways and thus he began his search for a multi carb intake. he was realy thinking tri-power but was open to goin the 2x2 route as well. after placing bids on a couple Ebay finds and then seeing them bid up over what he was willing to spend (way too close to the 1000 dollar mark for comfort in most cases) he decided to go a different route. you see, Dan has been building hot rods for damn near half a century now. he has always been the DO IT YOURSELF kinda guy and does not subscribe to the "i spent more money on my car than you did" school of thought. from the first time i met this guy i have been impressed time and time again with his truly out of the box thinking and out of the ordinary ways of solving problems. so, what does a guy like this do when he wants a part but is'nt comfortable parting with the green it will take to buy said part? you got it, he BUILDS it! Dan started with a length of 3/8 x 3" steel bar stock. then he traced all the holes through a HEMI intake gasket. once all the holes were laid out he drilled the bolt holes on the drill press but he also drilled out each corner of the intake ports. next he took a sawzall and played connect the dots untill he had intake ports in his new flanges. you could also (and much more quickly) blow these out with a plasma cutter if you have a unit large enough to do the job (afterall, there is more than one way to skin a cat as they say.). next Dan figured out the angle of the carb mounting surface on the factory intake in relation to the engine itself, in this case 3*. He then set up some tubing and other misc. scraps of steel, with clamps, in front and back so that his plenum would be at 3*. his plenum tubes are made from 2" thin wall square tube and were clamped to the temporary base he had setup. as you can see he has them set up with one plenum up high and one down low, quite similar to how a regular cast dual plane intake is set up. from there he was able to start figuring out his runner tubes, which he made from 1.5" thin wall square tube. Dan played around with small pieces of cardboard cutting them to different angles and holding them in place between the plenum tubes and the flanges that were bolted to the heads. once he had his angles figured out he would transfer those to the 1.5" tubes and started tacking them in place once he had them cut out. (disregard the copper plumbing. that was just Dan "thinking out loud".) Davey came through again with this trio of Stromberg WW carbs left over from his Mysterion build a couple years back.
