Very interesting car.  Nicely done.  Far more talent put into it than I could ever muster.  I predict, unfortunately for the seller, it won't make reserve.

I was trying to figure what was going on with the 5.7 intake manifold there, have to blow the picture up to figure it out. Agree it is a nice paint job, did a lot of good work there, the rest needs a little more debate.

After blowing it up, it appears there was some kind of real estate issue going on under the hood and had to reverse the intake to make it fit.

Nice looking car, but after so much effort he slacked off on the wiring. Crimp on connectors?

You noticed the messy wiring, too, huh?(http://www.moparfins.com/forum/smileys/smiley4.gif)
 
Yes, the intake was switched backwards to operate, just a backyard mechanic fix in this case, lacked the abilty to get a CAI from the front of the car to the TB, instead just jamming this together. A little sad in my book.
