    drawing air and fuel through a hot turbo? probably not very effective

    In a old holly book i,ve got it talks about enclosing the whole carby in a box,this way it eliminates the the need to modify the carby. Have said that i,ve never seen it done.

    more air means you need more fuel right? rejetting and a rising rate fuel regulator? probably other stuff havent really messed with this stuff in a while
