I've done a little. Blow through, and draw through.

Blow through with a boost-referenced mechanical fuel pump. Single T04E on a 360. Not big enough. 620 LB-FT @ 10PSI @ 2100 RPM. Needed two of those turbos to actually be 'right'.
EDIT: and note - you CAN weld an air cleaner together and seal it up - but it still won't make a good carb hat!!



Draw through T04B (V-2) on a 304 in a waggy. I was actually very happy with this setup.




You know people are going to flame your ass off and tell you that it is impossible and it will never have throttle response and it will be impossible to control and you are throwing horsepower and money away by trying to use a carb, right?

Yea, I know man.

I have a bunch of stuff laying around to use with the setup and going to go from there with it. I got a few older turbos laying around I have rebuilt and noone payed for.

If you haven't yet, might check out www.turbomustangs.com as there is a forum just for that... I have no experience with this myself but that is the Pirate 4x4 of turbocharging stuff.
