Charlie makes adaptors to run a A460 manifold.

Should pick-up 50-70HP or their about, but some times less, sometimes more.

Charlie Evans has adapters to install an A tunnel ram on C heads. Not sure how much you will pick up.

No,

You can use the A-head tunnel ram from TFS either new or the older "Holmes" if you also get the adapter plates from Charlie.

I have not done any dyno's for the single vs dual tunnel ram (old vs new) but I will later this summer or fall doing the exact thing you are asking.

50 - 70 hp is impressive. And almost as cool as Zoomies !

Probably about 3 times as much as a sheet metal would. 3 times less money won't buy light weight components. Basketball You wanna run for pinks?

I wouldn't say that, just that I'm not butt hurt over things said on the internet. I you want to offend me, you'll have to say something about my family face to face. Otherwise, its just key strokes.

Banning just increases relationships on other venues..

Dave C, I don't know why, but I don't consider myself a "weightlifter", only a weight lifter. I do it because after my wife worked in the catheterization laboratory, I became scared to death of having a heart attack. Weight lifting was something I did when I was young, so it was what I reverted back to as exercise. I run about 10 miles a week as well, but I also don't consider myself a "runner".

Don't worry about hurting my feelings, Nick will keep us in line if needed.
