Wow. All the carbed cars around where I live go fuel injection to go with turbo. I'm going to have to look into this more and do some research! Nice build btw evil_demon_01!

Fuel injection makes for much better control over fueling, which is very useful with turbo. It also tends to be much more fuel-efficient. Boosting with a carb is like being a sniper with a bazooka... it works, it gets the job done, but it's not the most precise method.




Colin, was your setup non-intercooled?

I've never heard of such a thing, nor can I find any information about HKS doing anything at all in terms of assisting in the creation of "factory modified" cars.

Yea it was non intercooled, which is the ultimate reason for its demise.

The design (draw through) means that you CANNOT use an intercooler.
Imagine passing a fuel/air mix through an intercooler, then having a backfire.
Also the cooling effect on the fuel causes it to condensate on the intercooler and pipes, essentially turning the charge pipes into a mini Fuel tank!!

Yeah, that's no good!

Why can't you run an intercooler as you would on a fuel injected car? Turbo, intercooler, charge piping... THEN carb to introduce fuel...?

Hmmm... the Wangan Midnight car has a huge front mount... Now I want to know if it's actually carb'd (it's been forever since I watched it), or if it's an oversight on the part of the artists. Wangan Midnight and Initial D both focus quite heavily on being as realistic as possible when it comes to the cars, so it'd surprise me if they "built" a car that wasn't really possible to build.

You can, (blow through design) but it opens up other problems, like you need to use a fuel pressure reg that raises the pressure only a few psi above the boost pressure (to prevent fuel being pushed back to the tank) yet low enough so that the fuel isn't forced past the needle seat.

Plenty or people still use carbs with turbos. I know of a local with a 350 V8 S10 putting down 433 whp, granted this is with a $900 CSU blow through carb.
