    For real, this could be a lot of fun to see what people did or actually tried, and if it worked or didn't.

      I mean, you might be surprised at what tricks folks here may be able to help you with on your own car.... per say, tuning dual quads... :)

          I've seen it on mopars too.... even at the last Dubuque Mopar Show I saw it. I'm not going to call this unhinged, because I think this can potentially help, but will not be felt by the driver :)

            The old man always talked about a buddy that had a alcohol dripper system under his carb.

                  Ok...here's a definite Unhinged. I received this last week from a guy who doesn't know me but got my address from someone else by going through his discarded mail. He asked me to invest in this "invention" - it's supposed to be a license plate frame with gas-saving and environmental benefits...that would not even work as a license plate frame.

                        I'm only in on this if you bolt each of those carbs to the same dual-quad intake and run it that way.

                                        No real details...but I often thought it be fun to try. Another idea is from a old drag racer.

Improved over the six pack scoop setup...
