Turbocharged BB
Somewhere was opinion,that putting turbocharger on big block V8 is just wasted out time, money and other wasteable things...
Any opinions?

OK,after all I think,that thread must be dumped.

i think this thread should stay....i too have been thinking about it....

what has to be done to a carbed vehicle to make the fuel keep up with the boost as it increases?

i know the carb has to be enclosed in a case so that the entire thing is pressurized and you dont blow the seals out of the carb, but other than that i have no clue.....

i would like to build a twin turbo BB for my 56, just to be different.....

I havent worked on anything turbo or supercharged so i dont know my but from a hole in the ground when it comes to it.

But from what i have read on previous articles (do a search on this site, youll find your answer) You dont use a normal carb, it has to be setup for a "blow-through" application.

Videos ive seen of boosted bb's were make you crap your pants wicked.

Check out You need to convert or buy a blowthrough carb, seems like CSU seems to be the choice of carbs. Fabricate some headers beef up fuel system and some other odds and ins, I'll be doing a single turbo blowthrough set up on my 69 camaro in the near future.

rectangle port heads and a 671 blower would put you were you want to be with the least amount of trouble and you would actualy be able to drive it on the street.fuel injection woud is a good place to start.If you have your heart set on turbo is the place to start
