Street/Strip Package
It was now time to step up our game. Jeff Latimer at Jim Grubbs Motorsports likes to build high-winding 331ci, small-journal small-blocks, which gave us the inspiration to bolt on a Summit combo tunnel-ram and some big-tube headers and tall valve covers to give our small-block that racer look. Did you spot our other subtle swap? Yep, we dumped those two-barrel 327 heads for a set of big-valve 492 castings. This approach still has a budget flavor because the tunnel-ram package from Summit delivers a pair of 600-cfm vacuum-secondary carburetors and the Weiand tunnel-ram intake, plus linkage all for less than $850.

If you want to read more about tunnel-rams, look up "Tunnel-Rams for the Street," in the Dec. '08 issue.
