    I'm assuming that everybody here posting know's that the 2x4 carb'd, Z-28 manifold is a flat tunnel ram!!

    Weiand made years ago a MOPAR intake manifold w/ raised like 30 to even maybe 45 degree's "runners in the air", named "Cross-Flow", cross ram inline 3x2 carb intake, (PN 7252), that I wish us Chevy guys could buy to this day!

    It's made like 2/3's of a TPI set-up that mounts 3x2's.

    In VA, plenty of those are on the street. I have plates for my car and can drive it on the street. Don't shift it past 6500. TR and two 1300s. I dont think mine is "kind of slow". If you've never seen a fast as hell TR you have not seen many cars. I will argue mine is fast as hell because of the TR.

    A Good Freind of mine is running a tunnel ram on his 70 Elco, 350/350 4.10 gears.. his runs very good, not a big cam either <not as big as mine> He has inspired me to finally put mine on. i cant wait until payday so i can install it.:D

    my cam is .488 .510 234/244 pretty nice sound and performance go with it.

    As I said 2 years ago, I'm switching everything I own to a tunnel ram.
    More power, easier to tune, and they make my hood scoop mounts stronger!!

    This conversation always turns into a single four vs tunnelram tirade, and once it turns in that direction no useful info is shared!!!! The poster asked some pertinent questions about running a tunnel ram, he got 0 info best I can tell, most people start out w a single four powered car, and at that point they should be developing carb, ignition, and cam selection skills, pertaining to their own personal driving style, and car usage. once person decides to go tunnel ram, then depending on car usage, cruiser, racer, weekend cruiser/racer, then you set up the whole combo for a ram, reargear, converter, cubes compression, cam lsa, and carbs!! If the poster will pm me w his combo I will be glad offer advise,

    Well since this is an OLD thread, I would bet he made his decision by now.
    Plus I don't know what you were reading, there was plenty of tips & advice posted.
