    Also when you click on the carb+boost section when it opens at the top there is another section called the carbination lounge, hard to see. It has all the carb dyno test from steve morris and more carb turbo talk.

    Bud,

    There are a lot of big dog engine builders and racers on that site who are very helpfull and kick ass guys to deal with!! Yes that is Gordons engine with the same carb!

    I see where you would think if 900cfm is good for 2000 hp why isnt 450cfm good for 1,000 but really thats like saying if I run 10's with 500hp I will run 5's with 1,000 hp.......

    Just read, and read, and read.......use the search a lot for anything you want to know and if you cant find it just put up a post or shoot me a pm. I can get you in contact with Heath and Roger over at C&S when you are ready for a carb!

    Hope some of this helps, I could talk turbos and carbs for days....... lol.

    Thank you so much for that link! I've been reading all day.

    Is this the 2101hp engine you were referring to?


    Thanks again!

    I am not saying that a 750 wont work but I am sure you will want more than a 750 down the road......also a boat needs much more fuel demand than a car.

    My 900 is also the best carb on the market right now and can supply fuel like no other!

    The power valves stay shut untill a desired boost level that you decided on, much better spool up and much more tuneable!

    Go to www.theturboforums.com and check out the carb+boost section, its all in there. Its a killer site for any turbo info.

    Just curious, if the 900cfm carb you have is suitable to support 2100hp why would a 750 not be able (or appropriate) to support 700-900hp? Some details and theory would help. Just doesn't make sense.

    If 900 cfm blow through= over 2000hp, wouldn't 450cfm = 1000hp (capable)? And your #'s are supported too, by the 1800hp dual 450cfm blow through set-up that procharger has on their web page.

    Within this logic, it seems 750cfm would be more than enough. What am I missing?

    Also, you say your power valves are modified for boost reference??? Do you mean that you've had the PVCRs drilled out to provide greater enrichment? It's my understanding that, in a blow through set-up, the power valves as well as the rest of the carb systems (except the accelerator pumps which are mechanically activated) all see the boosted pressure and operate accordingly. Am I missing something here too?

    I am just collecting parts right now, its snowing like crazy in spokane(10 inches in the last 24 hours) and will start putting it togeather in a month or so. Going to start the headers next week hopefully.

    Yes I will be running an IC, air to water set up in my boat. Yes it is true a carb does have a better colling effect VS efi because of how and when the fuel is intoduced! This does not mean there is no need for an IC but just that a carb does have a small cooling effect on the fuel where as EFI does not.

    If you were looking for only 5 or 6 psi you could get away with out an IC with a carb.

    Do you have a picture of your set up? are you running an inter cooler?, I heard you can make more power without an intercooler running a carb
    as aposed to efi, pump gas senario.

    If you need some carb info hit me up.

    Thanks Travis!

    Are you running a blow through or draw through set-up? Any pics?

    Boost referencing? Sounds like you're running draw through. A little bit different carb choice, isn't it?
