I ran a tunnel ram BBC on the street for years. DO NOT try to use the 660 carbs that were popular on the strip cars. They were way idle/rich and center squirters.. I ran a couple of small double pumpers BUT. With a stick trans, a very light car and a 4.56 gear.. Heavy right foot+youthful, Devil may care!!

Set the carbs up with a progressive linkage so the rear carb does most of the low rpm work. BAD mixture distribution but,,,

Also, Unless the "Superior" state has enacted laws in the past couple of years. The only Vision obstruction things are in the immediate driver area. Stuff hanging from inside mirror, blanked out side windows, no door mirrors, stuff stacked up high on the seats etc.

Tons of BIG SCOOP cars down in the SE Mich.flatlands..
