Bought the wrong port tunnel ram and was just told I can run a rectangle port intake on an oval port head doesnt make sense to me. Anyone have any experience with this ?
Ask the guys who deal with Dyno's a lot. That combo usually makes more power then the oval port manifold does. I am sure Bob or Steel will say something.
Alot of factors come to play on this question? Engine size,cam specs and intended carb. Not to mention boat and what you are trying to get out of it. Of Course everybody wants the most bang for the buck but I have done it and made it work. The biggest factor is a LARGE plenum manifold with a single shot carb?. With that being said the squirters and jets need to be stepped up to kill the initial hit from the peddle. As most people have learned with a single top tunnel is that they have a large hesitation on the hit simply because of the plenum which is mostly air and a touch of fuel will toss a big bog on off throttle response. So to cure that issue what would you do. MHas anyone had issues with running a single carb tunnel ram- issues being the fuel mixture is not consistent through out?? I'm looking to run this set up, but have a few people tell me not to because of it leans out the front and back cylinders? Any constructive thoughts/info on this would be greatly appreciated!
