Exhaust Explanation Needed


Hey Rat or anyone, what'sup with the exhaust system of this dragster?

I see the headers but can't tell where they go.

Pretty sure those top pipes are the exhaust.......updraft carbs or maybe fuel injected

I could be wrong.....on 2nd look, that top manifold looks a lot like a Hilborn fuel injection one....so those pipes would be the intake.....Strange setup, thats for sure

Studying that larger picture tells me this: The short pipes on top are the exhaust, and the plumber's nightmare along the lower sides of the heads is the intakes. The carb sits at the front of the engine, on top of what looks to be a crank driven blower of some sort.

The rusty pipes on top are the exaust, the tubes running along the top of the valve cover? is the ignition wire looms,, the gray larger tubes along the bottom of thye valve covers is the cooling lines,, the carb is the rounded object on the front of the engine like Rumble said              heres a video of it running                                                               https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9pPiKl6gWQY                      hope this works
