    Default edlebrock

    edelbrock carbs a real easy to make run if you cant make the edelbrocks run you may have some problems with holleys, i have ran both the holley were a little bit tricky to get them to run right, why do you need a tunnel ram on you small block anyway you will probably have to much carb

    Default tunnel ram

    1200cfm will more than likely be to much for you small block unless it was a big cubic inch small block, maybe a set of 450 hollys would be better

    i agree with Matt...1200cfm on a basicly stock 350 is alot of carb!...u have good heads ...i would "personally" find a Edelbrock RPM Air Gap manif & run a Holley 650/750cfm DP mech sec carb...i think u would be way ahead of the game! ...i know you want the looks, but, you dont want the pain nor the gas mileage!...just sayin' my .02 cents

    I have ran many small block tunnel rams, over carbed is a problem...
    202 ported heads will work, just depends on all the factors.
    I have run bigger, but had the heads for it, it all depends on your set up.

    FWIW, I think you're ok on the carbs and intake selection. The problem is, in boating applications, noone knows how to properly set up the Edelbrock carbs, which are really old carter AFB's. Me included. Maybe can't be done, I dunno.

    All the guys on here that posted would agree twin 600 or 660 Center Squirter Holley's would be just fine on your setup, so why NOT the Eddies?

    Find an old school tuner and get 'em set up properly. I think you'll be more than fine. Difference in the AFB carb and the Holley? Holley you gotta carry a toolbox full of jets and power valves to tune them, and tear them completely down every time. The AFB? Mostly screw adjustments, with the only parts needed will fit in a pill box. Been years since I dealt with them, but they were good enough for the venereable Hemi, I'm sold.
