You should have a check valve in that hose. Not just blown cars but all vehicles should...

On most cars with blowers, the carbs are considerably higher than the power booster... gravity takes care of the rest.

If you have the room, I would consider adding a 90 fitting on the inside of the carb base that would point down toward the rotors of the blower. I would think that would take care of most of the problem.
