tunnel ram on the street

Hello
I have not been on the site in quite a while, so I am not sure if this subject has been discussed recently
I have an old corvette which is being built as a street /strip car. Most of the driving will be on the street
It is a back halfed chassis with a narrowed Dana w 4.11 gears and a 19.5 x 33 in MT tire. I have a Doug Nash 5 speed and a 427 out of an old drag car I had
I have a single 4 intake w/850 holley, but I also have a tunnel ram and some smaller carbs( oval port heads)
I would like to use the tunnel ram if I can and I can cut the plenum area down some on the intake
The cam is large, so it is going to sputter and I love that effect, but I was curious if anyone had any good or bad stories of running a tunnel ram on the street
I will probably not even race the car that much, maybe only 2 or 3 times a year. I can go to bigger carbs for the strip, but I don't know how it would be on the street
thanks very much
Tom
