    I bet a single 850 DP or 750 DP on a TeamG/or similar single manifold with an ignition upgrade, would run quicker & faster. Don't be fooled by a tunnel ram with a low compression engine.

    I keep going back and forth as to whether to go with a T/R or with a Victor or Victor Jr setup on the new boat. I hate messing with one carb let alone two!!!

    I am running dual 450's on my chevy 496. It is just a 10 to 1 full roller motor. I love the performance I get out of it. Plus good fuel economy when cruising. And I agree with the cool factor too!!
