Not seeing it.  Can you snap a picture and point it out?

Not seeing any rebar....

Agreed, what intrigues me is the black tubing running parallel to the valve cover, does a 90 degree bend downwards (by the hood latch) through a ???? then under the intake.....
I don't have a '76, but THAT is not stock, OEM or whatever you wanna call it.

I know you aren't me, and I'm not you, but $5K is just too much for that non-EGR intake...

Looks like the bottom half of a floormat to me? 

There's some canister routing with that rod alongside the valve cover me thinks. Just guessing.

The top does look like a section of rebar cut out though. Never seen it stacked like that?

There's some heat shield around the injectors too.

Somebody buy it and answer our questions, please!

Curious as to how an EGR intake adds value to a car.  Not arguing, just wondering. 

That logic also says that a catalytic converter adds value.  And EFI.  Meaning carbs are bad, since all three of those are for cleaner emissions.

Sorry for the delay.  I actually had to fumble around to figure out how to do this in Windows paint.  It's truly unbelievable how incompetent I am when it comes to operating simple software.  Now that I look at it, it does resemble a floor mat of some sort.

@Zed Head To me, a NON EGR intake = less parts to replace when they go bad. Same logic I use when it comes to under-achieving engines that get turbo treatment from the factory.

KISS* principle. Might not be appropriate to current emission laws, but KISS*.

*to those just waking up = KISS = Keep It Simple, Stupid

Not so sure about your grammar there, wal.  You said $5K is just too much for a non-EGR intake, but now you seem to be saying the non-EGR is better.

You said "non-EGR" in a negative fashion,. "too much" is a negative,  now you're saying "NON EGR " in  a positive fashion, "less parts to replace" is a postive.  Were you using sarcasm?

No big deal, I'm just not understanding what you wrote first, then your reply to your own writing.

I believe he meant that "non-EGR" was better and valuable, but still not worth 5K... that's what I got out of it anyways...
