Tunnel rams got a bad rap years ago because most people ran them on engines turning 7000+ and the engines were built for that, and obviously big carbs, big cams, and single plane intake sucked down at low rpms.

The long runners are great for the mid range street torque if the COMBINATION is built for streetable rpm ranges.

Modern FI intakes (are single plane) are just folded over tunnel rams and since the FI solves the fuel metering problems, the wide LSA cams make great torque.

When you are thinking street tunnel ram.... think smaller carbs well tuned, and wider LSA cam.
