Look for long runners with a relatively narrow cross section for a good street tunnel ram (it'll help mid range torque). Short runners with a wider taper are for top end power. A good example of this is comparing a LT1 intake to a TPI intake, the TPI intake produces much higher low end torque and the LT1 intake produces higher peak hp. This is also the primary reason for a dual plane intake- runner length and packaging.

|vinniekq2||when I used 2 x 4 bbl on my street car, I used 2 x 750s. For some reason people think that you divide 1 four bbl in 1/2 and use 2 small 4 bbls,not true.You would use 2 carbs the same as if you used 1 carb on a single carb manifold( approximately) Tunnel rams come with different plenum sizes same as single plane intakes. If you buy a "cheap" tunnel ram,expect the same performance as buying a cheap single four BBl with an extra carb to add to the confusion.|

You won't find a complete setup cheap unless there's something major wrong with it. For a good used setup expect to pay anywhere from $500-$1000 depending on what it is.

|farmwalker||The tunnel ram is a little much for me right now. But if I come across one for cheap and I want to try it out what size should the two carbs be??|

|vinniekq2||750 is probably fine for that camshaft.If you ever upgrade the cam then an 850 will make a few more MPH in the 1/4. I use a 950 and drive mine on the street,works excellent.I started with a BG 830 demon.|
