Wow! Makes it look like the engine was meant to be there but from the info in the article, there was a ton of work to pull that feat off!

That engine looks SOoo much better without the upper intake manifold. Wonder if it could be fitted with something like a set of progressive 2bbl Webbers? (like they ever made them small enough, right?)
