    It's still on the engine, I haven't had time to swap it out with the Peugeot manifold I have.

    Unfortunately, I haven't done jack with my car for almost 2 years....life (and a home renovation) is totally in my way.

    Below is a pic, somewhere I think I actually have pics of the inside as well (Bill wanted to see the inside of it.)

    Cool to see that after hearing about it for years.

    Now if only someone had managed to put Jeff Friday's hi-rise manifold into production...

    As far as building the PRV engine to make more power, here are some notes that I took using information from John Lane.

    Buy a Volvo B280F engine and a Dodge Monaco/Eagle Premier engine.

    From the Volvo engine use:
    - engine block
    - throttle body
    - intake manifold
    - camshafts (note: for better lift, instead use camshafts from B280E engine, Volvo part numbers 247957 and 247959)
    - engine management system (fuel & spark computers, sensors, etc.)

    From the Eagle/Monaco engine use:
    - cylinder heads
    - cylinder liners
    - flywheel sensor
    Obviously if you're going carbureted you can ignore his suggestions for engine management. You also can't use the camshafts he recommended, either, since you wouldn't have a gear to turn your distributor. (I have a 3.0L, but it uses 2.85L camshafts because the engine has a traditional distributor and mechanical fuel pump.)

    If memory serves, the B280F engine would be a good start because its two middle main bearings are cross-bolted for extra strength, and it has a takeoff and return for an oil cooler. So if you plan to run boost...
