Looks more like a stealth port injection on the underside. Slightly inefficient imho but you wouldn't see the supply and return lines during a quick survey so worth it. Hot engine oil on the supply helps also.

We did all sorts of that style obstufication back in the day going up against the ($) big boys ($). The chick at lyons in a 72 toyota camper shell truck who had hugely accurate
Repeatable reaction times was our hero.

Speaking of nice wheels:


in 1970s and '80s Soviet racers modified magnesium helicopter wheels (a multi-piece 14 by 9-inch wheel) to replace heavy steel rims, because aluminum rims were far more expensive

14x9s on a five-bolt pattern. I wonder what the PCD is?

An odd mix of 50s accessories, and Porshe headlights with 17" Rader reproductions. I like the Kansas Beige or Shantung Gold, whichever.
