How many carbs?

I used to see a few back in the 70s. Usually a dcoe in front of a small turbo on an opel or datsun. No intercoolers.

Just remembered a porsche 911 with a draw through quadrajet. 150mph through the baltimore harbor tunnel.

The atomized fuel from the carb will really help cool the intake charge. Post results, sounds fun!

You need to change the seals on the turbo or it will such loads of oil through them as the turbo has to suck hard to pull the air and fuel through the carb

There's a reason this is not popular.

After a play about over the past few days actually the 2" was too much it was over fueling and wouldn't boost under low rev load say trying to pull from 20mph in 3rd wouldn't even pick up would just splutter but ive now fitter a HIF7 which is an 1" 7/8 slightly smaller and with a few modifications its not working the best its been should be ready for a proper road test soon been going round the block as of now testing it

You have to upload the pictures to another site like Flickr, Imgur or Photobucket, then use the 'Insert image' button in the new post/reply window.

I also want to see photographs of this awesomeness.
