Yes Don supplied the rails.
The Adel clamps are stacked to mount the tubes to the pushrod covers.
I’ve got my safety wire Adel clamp method down to a fine art now so there was only minimal cursing.
Not my photo but mine looks exactly the same as this photo.

I may yet relocate the rail outboard of the spark plugs.
The bend in the stiff short hoses places a twisting moment on the shrouds on the nozzles. The o-rings and spring setup appears to tolerate this but a straight hose I think would be better. I’ll ask AFP.

I'll bet these guys can come up with a good hose for that application.

The rail and the hose look great for a turbo installation, but for just providing ambient air pressure, looks like a simpler, lighter solution could work.
