he is boosting, only thing to watch out for (i think) is if the hood will shut without rubbing, not to hit the radiator, to have a good sealing surface for the throttle body, and that the throtle cable will reach. Not sure if there is anything else. I have to ask though, why make one yourself, when you can get a manifold proven to make power (all motor mikes manifolds)?

A 3 inch intake seems kinda small. I would think you'd want like 4 1/2 or 5 inches.

If its all motor, a 3" tube should be fine.. rediculously sized plenums are for turbochargers. Stagnant air in a large plenum means low velocity. In N/A, Velocity = HP.

I doubt it. The design isn't typical of something he'd do. There's no plenum area in front of the #1 cylinder.
