Default Mickey Thompson Mystery Engine

This was some of the stuff they were trying back in the day

If you remember the Ford Cosworth Indy engines the exhaust ports were on top (bundle of snakes exhaust header) and the & the intake ports were on the low side.

What's crazy about that layout is that it kinda mimics the port arrangement on the old Oakland Flathead V8 . On that one all the ports were on the top side towards the center of the engine.
