Even with dual 400's do you really need 800 cfm on a 350? More than likely not.
what kind of converter did you use or was it stick car
might try one of these this summer with a pair of 660 center squirters !!!
That would be gnarly, when you make that happen post some pics.
That's a neat setup!
I'm not really into tunnel rams, they're just not for me. However, I've alway's like dual quads on a low profile manifold that'll set under a stock type hood like these two setups C-26 Dual Quad or RPM AIR-GAP DUAL QUAD with a pair of 500 AVS carbs. THIS would be cool too. However I'm no carburetor expert by any means. I'm still waiting on my owners manual from Edelbrock so I can tinker with my 650 AVS.
Some of you guys have some pretty awesome looking setups. Nice pic's for sure!
TCI street fighter, 3500 stall.
Got a tunnel ram story for you. About 20 years ago I had a '72 RS/SS 4 speed Camaro. A really nice car. A fella traded me an Edelbrock tunnel ram (TM-1?) and two Holley 600's with linkage for a 10 bolt rearend. I bolted it on my car on a Sunday afternoon. Messed around with the carbs and got it to idle at 1200rpm. Ran out of daylight and had to call it a day. Monday morning comes and I gotta drive this beast to work 12 miles. I get about 1/2 block from the onramp to the Freeway and it starts loading up badly. I am revving it to clear it out and it starts backfiring. I say screw it and head up the onramp. It's gettng worse and worse and now I have fuel spraying out the vents onto my windshield! As I merge onto the 101 freeway it lets out a >BANG!< and coughs fire out of the carbs. Now my windshield is on fire! Holy crap! I turned the wipers on high to put it out and now I am flinging fireballs off to the side. Right then a black Porsche 911 comes flying past me and the guys eyes are as big as saucers. The carbs settled down and I made it to work. As I went to park I noticed my oil pressure was 15psi when it is usually 60. Yep, you guess it. I drained the oil and a quart or more of gasoline had washed past the rings. Thanks to this tunnel ram, I learned how to completely rebuild Holley carbs in a parking lot.I took it off when I got home and sold it. My first and last tunnel ram.
yeah i have actually been doing some reading and just from personal experience i have learned one thing for sure it truly dosent matter what you bolt on top of your tunnel rams but theirs no out of the box solution for them lol i figure if i can get it going right itll prolly take me a few weeks of tinkering and a couple sets of spark plugs to get it figured out but im hoping the head turn factor and the i ****ing dare you cam lobe at the red light will be worth it all
oh and some what i am percieving as bad news right now i believe the carbs on my car right now are not 650 cfm at all but they bear a striking resemblance to the holley 770 cfm carb i found on summitracing which is bigger than i feel comfortable messin with also the damn things have a vacuum secondaries and even worse their no seconday accelerators anybody got any good news that can help me either identify these if not i think i will be better off with the 660s
finally got mine on it runs excellent. TWO EDELBROCKS 1406's
me likes the stuff sticking autta da hood!!!!!!
