Nice exhaust placement! No need to cut the trunk in this situation, bolt it to the roof!

Gotta give the guy props for being creative!
I know the thought to run the exhaust over the roof and out the back would have never crossed my mind.

The transmission must be where the fuel tank 'used' to be!
Probably not 'street legal' though (sigh!).

Anything I might say is probably worth what you paid for it, so treat it accordingly!

Look out the front. It only needs to go straight.

And it doesn't look like the pipes really block any viewing, given they're at the pillars, that you can't see through anyway, and you don't really have to worry so much about it when the car is only going through pits or down the 1/4 mile. I am a little surprised that the track would let him run it with that configuration though, or why he didn't just throw a set of zoomies on it.

Doubles as an external roll cage? Intake possibly made out of an old fire extinguisher?

I can dig it.

Yeah, that's the weirdest looking scoop I've ever seen. Normally you'd want the front opening as large as possible.

Can't really tell what the diameter of the opening is, from the photo, but it probably is more than enough to fill the needs of the engine. And most scoops have an opening that isn't as large as the base of the scoop. Nothing particularly abnormal about the air flow design of this one. It meets the needs and is slightly hilarious, looking like an extinguisher bottle.

Suit yourself. I'll go with the "old school" look.

That scoop should also make tons of turbulence going into the carb by the way its placed too. Why would you not just put fenderwell headers in that ? I got them in a 426 Hemi in a 63 Valiant Signet unibody.

I didn't say I'd use that. I said it's probably fine for that car.

Also, there's a big difference between something built to drag race 1/4 mile, and a street rod built to cruise to shows. Just because it looks better, doesn't mean it performs better.

As far as drag racing goes, though, I'd prefer this:

It appears to be a small block Chevy with a front distributor drive like this:



No room in the back for one.

1986 SE Aero coupe.

3.4 DOHC swap is complete and running, now just have to finish the rest of the car...

I thought that at first, but look at the valve cover, The bolt in the lower corner is a giveaway, I think maybe Olds.

Where did you get this photo? This was taken at rock falls raceway in Wisconsin. I took some photos myself just a month or so ago - looks like he changed his scoop recently and ditched the old predator carb. I talked to the owners friend & he told me it was a stroked chrysler motor. It was running bad that day (sputtering upon takeoff) and ran 15's if I recall. The cage, rear end and 4 link all actually look like a top notch install - nice welds etc. I think it has potential to hit 10's if he gets it running right.
