Finally got the manifold studs I needed. Ordered some a few months ago but was lost or stolen in the mail.

Heres the ones I got - http://www.thezstore.com/page/TZS/PROD/15-8082, couldn't find a reliable source for 4-cyl manifold bolts so got a set from a 6-cyl and got a few backups for my collection.

So now the Carbs and exhaust manifold are in.

Plan is to completely redo the exhaust in 304SS if i can find a reasonable welder here near Portland (since I cannot afford to learn to weld currently) but my budget is low so unsure if that will happen, might just go to the local exhaust shop and have them weld up whatever plumbing pipe they have in back.
Ideally my goal is to keep the same length primary's as stock (2x 1.875") SS into a vibrant 10354 Y Connector. then the rest in 2.25" 304SS; a Thrush glasspack (owned) in the middle, then into a Borla XS muffler (owned) at the end. and weld in my A/F gauge near the front.

But here is the important part (pictures)

when i got the car and today. (still have a mess of wiring to do)
