i went to a car show today and saw a nova with a 350, from what i saw it had dart heads,and a tunnel ram with 2 speed demon carbs,i asked him how much horsepower he was running and he said 600 hp, i really dont believe this, but can it be since he has a tunnel ram?, do they perform that well? the motor was not stroked.
what do you think

NASCAR engines make over 750hp with roughly the same size engine. So, it IS possible, but I'd say VERY unlikely.

T-rams really do work well & add power, you just have to set the car up to use it. A guy here bought a Hendrick engine & only went mid 11's with 750 HP. Got a different bunpstick, low, LOW 9's. Put on a T-ram & the 355 is solid in the 8's on the engine. Costs a ton. I used one on a stock 429SCJ & picked op .2 & 10 mph but it was a cop magnet.

it is possible like motorhead said nascar runs 750hp on naturally aspirated motors with no tunnel rams, and i also have a buddy that has a 68 cougar that has a 351c that is pushing 550hp without a tunnel ram or nos. it just has one 1195 demon on it. so its possible

They will work, but like was posted earlier, the rest of the combo has to be matched to the TR. Our old 306 was identical to a buddy's engine, except he had a TR and 2 450 holleys, and ours was a vic jr and 830 HP. Ours ran 9.0's (1000') and his runs 8.90's. Not much difference there, but tuning a TR is a major PITA, because there are twice as many parts.
