    I was watching a Youtube music video The Cars-Drive-who's going to drive you home song, has a guy in a 75-77 Yellow Camaro picking up a girl, stops to park and the old engine problem story, she get's out and pop's the hood, the camera zooms in on the engine, my question is what intake and carb/injection system is it, and the brackets and belt system set up...Thanks

    That's Bumble Bee from the 2007 Transformers movie.

    That engine is a movie prop.
    It has some sort of aftermarket intake manifold and velocity stack setup on it.

    That's a shot from the movie transformers
    It has a cross ram intake on a 350 motor.

    Though the parts are real, the engine is not, it's cgi just like all the robots, when I learned this I stopped trying to find the parts for the engine so I don't know what belt system that is.
