A lot. Everything. No.

The DCOE flange needs to be cut in half, then the throttles will be split apart and welded to the flange. The throttles will also need some of the vacuum ports plugged and the inlets need to be turned to mate with the velocity stacks. The throttle outlets will probably need a round in the lathe as well to make port matching easier.

The cast manifold is clearly of dubious quality and will probably need to have the faces milled flat.

Since the throttles will be split, the fuel rail blank will be machined to fit the new spacing. AN fittings will also get welded on and mounting brackets will also need to be fabricated.

:)

Why use the cast at all?

For mocking up purposes it's fine. I may replace it with a higher quality OEM set of manifolds.

How much work will it take to get it to fit ? What will be modified ? Or are you running intermediate runners to mate up the two parts ?

A little more clarity shown here.

OK, now I see it. Are you planning on running filters on the stacks ? I'm buying some now for some Webers, prior owner of a car was running the velocity stacks wide open. :unsure:

Spring not locked at full travel?

No. Need shorter shocks.
