How I made a AMC v8 blower intake

I tried to find a blower intake for my 360, but no success...
 
So I was in the same situation as I was when I did not find aluminium oil pan for V8. Then I casted my own...

I had most of the parts for my blown 360, but intake manifold. I had a new casting project on my mind but had no time to made all necessary jobs...
 
So, when I found an Offenhauser intake for sale, I just knew what to do...
 

 
One big opening...
 

 
... needs a cover...
 

 
...and a spacer.
 

 
Put them together...
 

 
And then weld it!
 

 
Finish it to be even with crankshaft...
 

 
Finished product...
 

 
A pic of the machine that made the job... My friend Jape does the work for me.

Im going to have a old fashioned pop-off valve.
This is going to be on a street engine, and if something occurs burst panel can stop my driving all together... with pop-off I can drive back home...
