Hey, why not tunnel ram, EFI and blowers all at once?

Seriously though, tunnel rams rule on any V-8. Height and cost are the only reasons not to use them. Take a peek at the latest sheet metal intakes for carbs if your local drag racing engine builder will let you. Some crazy stuff going on in those plenums.

GLENNS just had Wesseldyk build him a pair of 565cid engines with hyraulic roller cams, 315cc AFR CNC ported heads, 9.3 comp ratio and 34* of timing. and tunnel rams that so far on WESCO's dyno have made 700hp on the nose @5400rpm.

It's a Holley Pro Dominator intake. M4 unit, big pulley...7psi boost. Idles and runs very well with Nickerson prepped carbs. Little rich in secondaries to be safe. 900-950hp.
