I hate to do this, but I have to disagree (Sort of).

While I think that is true to a point, I believe that most problems associated with sluggish low end performance with tunnel rams are due to incorrect tuning. Either over carbed, under carbed, stall speed, rear end gears, ect. All of the things have to compliment each other and if they don't then yes, it will be slower. You have to make sure you get the correct ram for wat you want to do. Not all are created equal. If you try to bolt on a large runner, rect. port, large plenum intake on a stock engine you will probably have a some work on your hands. Just my 2 cents, but I am no expert. My tunnel ram set-up is very street friendly.
