I'm not convinced either. Looks to me like it would either:
Poke up through the bonnet, through the windscreen & into the cabin or
Forward out through the front valence.
Neither seems ideal....

Can't see how it could possibly fit either, the single pipe is far too long.

I don’t even think it would mate to a Sprint head at all.

It wouldn't. Sprint manifold is held on with five bolts and the spacing of the tubes is completely different.

Looks to me like a RH bank for a Rover V8 possibly for a Stag conversion.

Definitely not Sprint.
