Anyone running a Chevy inline?

I am running a 250 I6 in my 30 Chevy. I've had no luck finding intakes other than the ones that run a one or two stock single barrel carbs. I have some Holley 94s that I want to run, and I also want to run my own version of a lakes header. Since neither of these manifolds are being made, I plan on building my own. What I am wondering is if anyone else would want something like this? If not a lakes header a traditional, but mostly for running two (or 3) 94s or 97s. Or any other 3 bolt carb. I am basically trying to figure out if I should have some stuff laser cut to make a few, or if I should just focus on making my own and call it good at that.

Chevy 6.

There's actually a ton of aftermarket stuff for the 194-215-230-250-292 style 6 cylinder engines. Clifford 6=8, Offenhauser, Fenton (repops), Major Cam Manufacturers, Ignition Components. It does cost a bit more to build than say a SBC. Just what I like to see; another "Six Maniac", or "Registered Six Offender". Build a mild 250 shortblock; use a # 3864883 194 head for the small combustion chambers, HEI distributor, Clifford intake with a small Holley 4 barrel, the repop Fenton cast iron headers, mild hydraulic cam. Back it up with a 3.11 first gear Saginaw 4 speed and 3.55/3.73 rear end gearing. YOU WILL BE IMPRESSED, and DIFFERENT!

I realize there is a big aftermarket. It just isn't really what I want. Its an open wheel car, so I want the look of the 2+2 intake and the lake header.

I've got a TH350 and a Ford 9 Inch with 3.00 gears in it to back the motor. I fear I won't have room for 3 pedals in a small car, otherwise I would source a T10 or something similar.

And I will probably run a mild Crane cam.
