Well i have done some researching, and i am still wondering is there, on rotary a limit or boundry in power for a carb/turbo setup. I have been watching and i was told i should just run it a little bit rich at bottem end, and run a pull through system with a holley with vacum secondaries(although i am thinking of using a preditor carb) but what i am wondering can you/could you run a 12a with a bridge port/half bridge a TO4 with a divided exhuast .96 to around 475-575 hp running around 25 psi?? Because i have been told also that running anything above 15 psi on a carb is really risky, but i rarely see any carbs and turbos together, Thanks,Mike

I don't see why you couldn't run carbs, though its not done often. As long as its properly sized to maintain the volume of fuel and the needle is sized correctly.

This is what I am working on, I could do fuel injection, but I want to try something different. There is a mustang that runs a blow through turbo and is in the high 7's. This is a topic that I have been researching for a while now.
