Default Mystery manifold!

Forgot I had this. Bought it almost 15 years ago for one of my rides. Can anyone guess the application?

It'* a carb manifold for a 90 degree V6..I think...though I'* scratching my head about the lack of a distributor hole. Late 70'*/Early 80'* with that GM Corporate Blue paint. Hmmm...perhaps a Buick manifold?

Not really, as issued it would have had a small Q-Jet and not much in the way of power. I'd guestimate 110 hp tops saddled with all the emissions gear. These were the bad years for power output.

I thought the two lumps on the right were two intake runners really close to each other.
