Other than it's a single 4bbl single plane, it's quite different that a Torker.  
Edelbrock makes a Torker and a Victor both for a low-deck Mopar Big-Block. There's a reason for doing so and they are not the same intake. You can read the catalog.  
I already have a semi air-gapped Torker. The purpose of this was not for airflow around the exterior of the runners. That would be a waste of time.

 An air gapped Torker the hard way. There's a fellow that visits the forums that goes about it differently.

Holy crap that is a lot of work!!
 
Fascinating project none the less. Really interested in how it works out. Seems like a great idea, but will be interesting how the final runner lengths work out and how it performs when finished.

All welded up and now at the porting shop. Had to cut the valley cover out to get full welds around the runners. Progress will no doubt slow at this point. He will also soften up some of the beads. I think next time I would say cut a pocket out of the base manifold and insert the spider runners half way through the pockets and then weld / build up from the side slabs. That was mentioned by somebody here.

I  need to pull the starter on my 66 Marlin with a 327.  Got under the car and I can't see how to get to the upper bolt on the starter, or how to get the starter out without pulling the sway bar.  Anybody have any help here?  I have the service manual and it shows how to test, etc but not how to remove it.  
 
Thanks,   MG

I was talking to the guy who has the #4 Franks Custom Fiberglass AMX body last week. It turns out he has the molds for the body, hood, doors, trunk, all of it. I know some have been looking for doors and hoods, etc these should fit. I do not want to give out the guy’s phone number or be a middle man.  PM me I will pass your info to him, so he can contact you.
