IIRC, the purpose of the longbox shape was because the individual tubes were all equal length but because distances from exhaust ports and routing, they ended at different parts of the collector.
lol, yep and we may have 87,000 more of those brainiacs soon.When I got out of the Navy (August ‘75) I started college the following week. Income tax time came and I filed as quickly as possible (needed $ for second semester and party expenses). Needless to say, everyone I knew was getting their returns, and I was getting nothing.
Finally, several months after filing, I got a LETTER from the IRS, telling me they had processed my return, but they could not mail it to me because… THEY DID NOT HAVE MY MAILING ADDRESS!
I called the regional IRS office, read their letter to him, then chewed his *** out. He had no explanation for the letter, but he did ask if I would return it - nope.
I got a certified letter from the IRS with my refund check a few days later. Sadly, I lost the IRS letter somewhere during my moving around during college.
