You will find that even thou your tunnel ramed, cammed up 350 is quite happy crusing at a fair good clip, that is not nessessarily a gas hog. Especially if /when you tune the carbs and spark advance curve correctly.

You will be suprised at how good it cruises. Cammed motors want to stay in their natural best rpm range to be efficient.

And if you dummy down the gear ratio althou it runs at a lower engine rpm, it does not pick up efficiency.
Neither in terms of fuel mileage or performance. Especially of it has a fair big camshaft in it.

Most people never realize the power a tunnel rammed car will make.
Tend to dummy down the combo too much.

This engine/ car/tire combo is begging for some 5.57's. Now you're cookin' with gas.
