Re: SBC Tunnel Ram

Reason being is to determine if the manifold's runners CSA is big enough to keep up with larger port heads.

Rupert carbs and Weiand E85 go or no go?
You'd be better off just running 2 eddy carbs in a T ram

Re: SBC Tunnel Ram

For a street deal consider my 2x4 carb on a 2x4 to 1x4 carb adapter scheme on say your existing strip dominator. It will GLH and yet drive easy with 2 Edelbrock 750 or 800cfm carbs. Make the adapter fair tall for a good transition. Will still be net a bit shorter than a T Ram. Fraction of the price....

Unless you are racing engine dynos, let the track ET slip guide you.

Re: SBC Tunnel Ram

No experience with that specific.. Plan on dyno testing it to get it dialed in on your sbc. It will run fine with your cam .. But to get the max perf out of it will want a bigger racing cam and plenty rpm. The sbc racing tunnel rams really like to buzz.

Re: SBC Tunnel Ram

If you really want the power band to be up that high
you will want to cam it way up. The Victor Ram manifold really likes to rev up, if you really want it to work. And go fast(er) by that.

Re: SBC Tunnel Ram

Do not bother with 660's. Start with 750 HP carbs. Holley or Proform/Quick Fuel. Get a real racing converter 9" 5000 stall.

Re: How to sleeve a 350 the right way?

The shop that sleeved a 350 for me did not weld the cracked cylinder first. Not needed. If the other 7 .040 over cylinders are servicable with a hone+ re ring just fix the one cylinder... if another 350 block is available (can be a 2 bolt) it is a consideration. Make all the holes the same size regu...

Re: Flat tappet vs roller

The MolySlip E oil additive does not effect ring seal. Thousands of engines use it. Moly is on Moly piston rings. It improves ring seal and ring life .. It extends life of cams lifters and lifter bores and pushrod tips etcetc. Total seal gapless piston rings are a lot of hype.. No oems go near them ...

Re: Pump gas percolation carburetor

Get the Seals-it fuel pump heat isolation gasket kit. Move and or insolate the feed side of the fuel line from ex heat. Add a Pusher elec fuel pump at the back near the tank to pressurize the fuel line. It is spring time. You are likely still using winter gas which vapourlocks easier than summer gas...

Re: KB Claimer pistons

A more expensive forged piston would not have survived these mishaps. . While they won't break they still fail by scuffing the cylinder wall . Still may run but the ring seal is destroyed. The repair is the same.

Re: KB Claimer pistons

Had a bud who did break a KB piston . was 13.5:1 cr methanol. River racer. Was playing with carb jetting and timing and got z bit carried away (lean) . Again straight r&r 1 piston repair. Never a problem after., 6800 rpm WOT steady running.
