1:1 Boost referenced fuel pressure regulator means??

Hi, I'm looking at a could of aeromotives fuel pressure regulators and I see that some are 1:1 boost referenced. I was wondering if that meant 1 psi of boost = 1 psi of fuel. Makes perfect sense but gotta check. Also, does anyone have any experience with those in a carbed super/turbed car, should it be used. Because if the fuel pressure gets up that high then it'll just flood into the carbs bowls, but I have no clue. This is one a street/strip car with a 350 sbc 750 cfm carb with a 144 blower by the way. Let me know, thanks.

Brandon

Brandon I think you are correct a 1:1 boost reference regulator would increase fuel pressure 1 psi per lbs of boost.

I did not hook up my boost reference to the regulator and I never saw a problem. I just set the fuel pressure and left it at that. I watched to make sure my fuel pressure stayed steady even under boost conditions and it did. I can see where in a fuel injected situation it would be handy, just not sure it is really needed in a carb'd application.
