There are alot of what ifs with this build. Just a theoretical one.

460 CID engine with DOVE heads
Tunnel ram intake with 1 750 cfm holly

What cam would be good?
Go with a bigger carb?
Head work required at this level?

Also safely rev past 5 grand.

I have my own question for you here ... what is the purpose of a tunnel-ram manifold on a pair of D0VE heads???
The ports don't match in any way unless the heads are ported, (at least port matched), and unless it's just for looks, other manifolds WILL make more power everywhere - when using a single 4 barrel.

Guy said the current setup on his car, the carb is right under the hood (iron intake) with no room for a air cleaner and doesnt want to cut a hole just for that.
