    Like Bill said, unless you are going to build a high compression, hi revvin motor, leave the tunnel ram on the bench. Takes a lot of motor and a lot of rpm to make a tunnel ram work. RPM range, depending on cam selection, is usually in the 3500 to 8500 RPM range. To build a motor to run at that level it's going to be a race gas only, hi buck deal.
