oh i see what you mean now, i think this could be rather expensive to do, you would need brackets and each bosy would need a filter and some way of getting a lot of air in to them, what about posting in the serious performance section, there are a few on here that can advise

I believe theres a manifold for the jaguar V6. Not sure if it fits the duratec tho. ITBs would be a great mod. Even if you had to get the manifold fabricated. Iv been luck with my zetec that i can use the ST170 manifold on mine.

Theres a few ways of going about it the custom way. You can get 2 sets of triple bodies off a bike, or even buy 2 sets of 4 and remove 1 from each, or buy 3 sets of twin bodies. If you have loads of free time, once you get the manifold sorted the rest is actually very simple.

Sorry i cant be of more help

i looked into it a while ago and there is also an issue with the physical room to fit them on the top of the v6 clashing with the bonnet. on mk1 and mk2's the bonnet is nearly touching the top of the engine anyway.

you have to remember tho that the upper and lower manifolds will be removed on teh V6, so there will be loads more room than you think. However you may still need to mod the bonnet slightly
