Most run twin stage fogger nozzels in the manifold, rather than plates, but I see no reason it couldn't be plumbed to work.

A plate system generally has one bar that sprays nitrous and the other bar sprays fuel. A tunnel ram acts like individual runners without the hassle of having to tune eight velocity stack injectors or barrels of multiple carbs (such as found on a Webber set-up). You would need a bar for every two pair of runners for both fuel and NOS to install it inside the manifold. Also a dual stage implies a separate system with duplication of the controlling solenoids, hose (plumbing), and nozzles as they spray at different times, and usually at different rates. You could leave the line with a mild hit on a plate system and then hammer at full traction with your fogger system.

If you are just trying to hide the system, run everything below the manifold, and let your competition find your 75 horse plate system. He doesn't have to know about the two hundred horse fogger system plumbed out of sight, and it helps explain the presence of the Nitrous bottle in the trunk.

although im no expert on tunnel rams, wouldnt adding/modifying the manifold pieces change the airflow through it. possibly create an undesirable effect ? i think i would want to test it on a flow bench before trying to tune it on a car.

I believe the orifice protruding through the runner will actually help atomise the raw fuel putting it back into suspension.

i was referring to installing a plate system between the upper and lower plenums of the tunnel ram. at least, thats how i understood his question.

i understand having the nozzle in the flow and the runner becoming longer would change the velocity ,who could do the flow test work for me in ga.
