The one above appears to be at first glance due to the headers coming off the engine, but look closely. You can see the oil filler and timing plug on the same side of the cylinder as the headers !?!? They must've done some big time modification on that engine. That means they're using a left side head on the right side and vise versa. It also means they must've ground a custom cam to make that work. Yikes. Crazy shit.
