"Only" 8 carbs? ^^^^^^^^^^
8 is enough
How about 8 more.
Ill see your 8, and raise 8 more.
Buick engineers experimented with this turbocharged 425 CID in the ’60s. Carter YH side-draft carbs fed a single TRW turbo, purportedly generating more than 425hp and 700ft/lbs of torque, far more than any OEM Buick drive-line could handles. As such, the project was parked. The engine now resides in the GM Heritage Collection in Michigan.
He's a reverse flow Buick nailhead
In 1951, Harley Earl’s famous LeSabre concept appeared, with a radically advanced 3.5 liter (216 CID) aluminum V8 that ran on both gas and methanol. It was supercharged and rated at 339hp. Here's schematic and the actual engine
The little Buick engine had hemispherical/pent roofed heads, but with its valves in the classic formation allowing for large valve diameters. If you look at the intakes on this, one can see that the nailhead used the same unusual arrangement, but for both its valves. The LeSabre/XP 300 engine’s exhaust push rods had a wild arrangement, and were designed to fit into the block between each cylinder.
