    Hi all, i am considering doing a tunnel ram set up on my 360, i was just wondering if the Weiand 1995 is anything like the 5995? As they don't make the 5995 anymore im just wondering whats the next best thing, also i understand the Edelbrock street tunnel ram is a good one, but seems they are obsolete too. Engine is only mild so looking for something not too outrageous.
    Any advice appreciated thanks.

    I cant say for sure,but would not be surprised if 1995 is just a new partnumber on 5995 but thats form a quick picturegooglesearch.

    The Edelbrocktunnelrams are good on fairly mild engines with their long runners, they are available with three different tops, Tall top for a single fourbarrel,Tall top for dual fourbarrels and the Low top for dual fourbarrels.The last version is the one you want,dual carbs low top, hard to find one? dont worry,find a mopar smallblock edelbrock tunnelram with any random top and then order #7032 from Edelbrock,its a top for a smallblock chevy street tunnelram and it will fit just fine Edelbrock 7032: Street Tunnel Ram Intake Manifold Carb Top Plate Only | JEGS

    The Weiand is probbaly good aswell,just dont have any excperience with them.

      The only tunnel ram currently made and available new is the Weiand. All others are no longer made. You’ll have to fish around for what is used.

      I failed in a spectacular way to point that out in my post ,even thought that was the reason i wrote about the chevy top piece fitting the mopar bottom part.
      Considering how often they pop up used over here there must be plenty of them in USA.

      LOL! I have a few tunnel rams here for experimental purposes later on down the road. Not a Weiand though. I have seen one at a local meet. The seller wanted more for it than a new one from Summit racing.

      Someone has offered to sell me a Edelbrock TR-5, do you guys consider this to be a good choice?

      The TR5, has smaller runners. It should be an excellent street intake. I have it at home. If you want, I’ll get pictures up and dimensions on the runners and plenum. I have the small dual quad top.

      I somehow failed to see your location,but yes Edelbrock TR-5 is a good tunnelram for a milder engine due to its fairly long runners that are reasonably sized!

      So i asked Holley if the Weiand 1995 is similar to the old 5995 and this is the response.
      "Yes. 5995 is the part number for just the runner section and 1995 is the part number for the upper and runner together. "
      Now the guy offering me his old tr5 is asking $450 (AUS)+ postage, I've included a pic.

      Intake ports range from 1.00 - .93 wide, 2.14 - 2.17 in height, runner length is just shy of 7 inches on the floor and about 5-1/2 on the runner roof. The base inlets are 1.79 front to back, 1.90 - 1.88 left to right.

      The plenum top half is close to 14 inches front to back, approximately 6-1/2 wide, the rear carbs depth closest to the distributor is a 1/16 shy of 3 inches and the front of the front carbs plenum depth is 2-3/4 deep, both measured to the tops inside floor.

      The tilt of the carbs in degrees I do not know but it is approximately a .040 drop from the rear of the carb pad to the front on both carb pads.

      The carb pad heights are 9-1/2 inches at the rear and the front.

      Between the smaller TR1Y top and the big bath tub unit in your picture, I don’t know which one is better for what.

      This intake may make the wife’s car one day.
      I know her, she’s a HP junky..... LMAO

      I just got this from a member here. Looking forward to a full ported set of W2’s on a stroker.

      This is a MP, M1,W2 tunnel ram. I also have a standard port T ram of this make and flavor. These are race parts. Left to right the lower runners entrance vary a lot in shape, width and depth from as wide as 2.86 left to right, 1.94 “V” ing down to 1.12., upper plenum depth is a full inch plus deeper, lower intake half runners are a full inch shorter than the Edelbrock. 10 inches high in the back, 9 up front. image.jpg image.jpg image.jpg

      Standard port vs W2’s.

      The standard ports are a narrow 1 inch by a sky scraper tall average of 2-7/32.

      W2’s have a average port size of 2-3/64 X 1-19/64.

      thanks for posting all the pics Rumblefish, boy the difference in the ports is pretty cool to see!
      Ps. Would a tunnelram setup need to be dyno tuned?

      Nothing needs to be dyno tuned but it sure would help quicken the process of finding the best possible running set up on the engine. You could of course spend time at the track sorting things out until you find the best for the engine and chassis at the same time. Though it adds a lot of variables. As well as lengthen time to figure everything out, some guys like that challenge.

      I should have put the Edelbrock and M1 standard ports togther. I’ll do that later.

      That intake has the taller top piece wish is realy designed for higher rpms,sorry i cant remember the actual rpm range but if tunnelrams are hard to find for you localy it will probably work fine anyway,you can always find a lower edelbrock TR top from either a mopar or chevy tunnelram at a later point and just swap the top piece,the lower top piece is the one you can see in Rumblefish post.


      Oh and thats some nice pics from Rumblefish
      I will add one aswell of an Edelbrock tunnelram on a little 340

      Oh thanks man.

      I see you have what I photographed up and running!

      There was a thread about this a month or two ago where a old magazine article professed the combo as choice of the pro stock guys. Pictures were included. I just don’t know the cylinder head or cube displacement limitations. But since it was OLD! I’d guess stock heads and displacement. But I can not be sure.

      Tell me about that pictured engine some!

        Well it was up and running about 10 years ago:)

        It was a stock stroke 0.030 over 340,about 11:1 compression running milled down TRWL2322 pistons
        Ported Edelbrock rpm 340 heads ontop of it, Crane gold race rockerss
        Eagle H-beam rods.
        Small Comp cams XR280R solid roller, 242/248@.050 and .570/.576
        MSD probillet distributor,MSD6AL ignition box.
        Block had a pretty tall fill.Deepest oilpan you can imagine.
        Couple Proform 750 doublepumpers.
        Ran quite nice on pumpfuel,the only things i would change if i did it again was the carbs i think a pair of 500cfm Edelbrocks or the almighty 660centersquirters would have been much better. Would also have prefered the closed chamber heads ontop of zero deck flattops but it was a ancient shortblock that evolved so to speak.

        Today i cant replicate it again since i sold the heads and tunnelram a couple months ago and only have one of the carbs left but i do have another 340 block with fresh .030 over bores that im measuring up for a new build as soon as i know how much money i have left after getting the floor and rockers replaced on the car,if i ever find someone who wants to do the job.
