do you have to change something on the carbs or just put the turbo on the carbs? <p></p><i></i>

the problem with running a turbo with carbs is that you have the tune the Air fuel ratio to your maximum boost. This means anything under max boost you'll be running major rich with lots of black smoke<br><br>Adam<br><br>Teamswift Webstore Webdaddy <p></p><i></i>

They have a pressure sensitive valve that open an extra fuel line acordingly to manifold air pressure. This valve can be tuned for richer/poorer setup. Depending of the car/model, the valve vas either intagretad to the carb or was a remote unit. <p>Jardamuth<br><br></p><i></i>
