Tunnel ram on street

Engine size and build info? Run a couple of 500 cfm Edelbrocks (#1404) or 600 cfm Holleys (#1850).

Get a pair 600 cfm VS 1850's Holley. there are other guys out there that got great result with the 600 Holley. It's not nessary to run two electric chokes. You only need one setup for easy cold starts. Make sure you install balance vacuum line for uniform secondary operation. Hope this helps.

I am about to put a tunnel ram on one of my BBs with two 500 eddies.I just like the cool factor of them but have a friend running one and that rat honks.Let us know how it works out for you.
You hear a lot of down talk about them and a lot of good but the way I see it if your are not willing to do some work tuning it's not worth the effort and I for one love a good challenge.

I`d use a couple of Road Demon Jr. 525`s. They have a nice look to them plus they have annular boosters which is far better than any straight leg or down leg booster.

even tho it is a BB, becarefull not to over carberate, seems thats one of the biggest mistakes guys do when running a TR for the street is over carb the engine.. As mention, two 600 VS or even two 500 VS should do just fine

I ran the Weiand T-ram kit from Summit and I loved it. I had no problems. Never really even tuned the carbs, pretty darn close out of the box. Just make sure you have enough stall (3500 for me) and mine liked the timing locked out. 2 600 Holleys, no choke and no vacuum pods. Ran great, I just removed it for a blower.

Even better. I think you will be fine. A small diameter distributer might be needed though.
