fair enough. this is billet badass shit not shitty cast chinese shit.. i probibly have 800 dollars into my carbs plus the 300 or so for the intake, nevermind the hours spent porting and tinkering with the carbs.

 

for the right guy its definitely worth it. 

 

the fucking shitty thing for me is Canadian pesos aren't worth much right now, so at 800usd it would be like 1200 CAD to buy it, when the current intake setup on the car now I bought when our dollar was par.. so its shitty buying parts from 'murica.

I have seen:

 

Sand Rail with a Dual Mikuni fed L-20B

Alpine Sunbeam with a Weber Carbed L-18

69 Jaguar E-Type with an L-24 with stock SU carbs

Farm water pump with an L-16

And a few L powered MG and Triumph sports cars and one Fiat Spider with an L-18 SSS 

sunbeam alpine would be a good swap... the stock engines in those are shit!!!

 

there was a log splitter for sale around here a while ago with an l16 on it... 

 

MG's and triumphs sound like good canadates as well... sand rail or baja bug would be good... a lil extra weight out back would help the wheelie time :)

 

theres an Austin America I know of rotting away in a field, may be a good one for a L20b...

 

i'd love to get my hands on one of those Datsun jet boats too.

small port version for the putt putt guys and a monster port behemoth for idiots who want to try to make 1000hp..... 

 

or if you make one port design leave enough meat so the runners can be hogged out to 1.6 inches or so with a thicker area that could be tapped for nitrous nozzles... 

 

since you have awesome machines you could probably pick a popular top feed injector and build a fuel rail to go with the manifold and make it super awesome.

 

 

any idea on cost for this cnc cut beauty? I think I would pass if it was 1500 bucks or something but if it was like 400-800 I think that would be fairly reasonable.. 

 

I'm interested to see what you come up with
