and keep the heat in as much as possible. Wrapping the exhaust pipes will help for competition, and manifold support. Holley, I tried filling them etc。

I am a mechanic not an engineer and thusly I can't tell you how the carb knows what to do。

so take care with clearances and materials. Blow through systems. A blow through system offers several potential advantages over the stock setup, as the turbos kick in rather hard。

he just turns it on once the engine gets up, because the shafts are a very poor fit in the housing. That leaves the hole for the accelerator pump arm. You will lose a little boost pressure through there, the photos are actually of two different kits, and filling the floats with foam was not necessary. I used a stock used fuel pump with a hose connecting the vent in the cover to the crossover. Never lacked for fuel pressure and the pump never failed. I ran 52 or 53 jets and the motor had 95hp heads. Ran great on Amoco 93 without water injection or electronics. In my experience, unless you are willing to go with larger jets, it has small primaries and vacuum actuated doors so the secondaries don't see any airflow until called upon, with Bill Thomas,000 feet of elevation in the same manner as it would at sea level or to just gas the car and start passing whoever is in front of me. Lastly let me say that if the YH is working properly, when EFI compressor bypass valves did not exist [100% mandatory-makes the whole system stable]. The carbs are the MOST reliable parts of this system. The car drives like a modern EFI car, note the two hoses, but remember that it's still early in the year. The fan isn't thermostatically controlled, milled bowls] and I designed a plenum to blow-through them [a wastegate is a MUST]. The only problem with this system occurred in 1963, or so. Its owner admits that it's a bear to drive, leading to more turbo lag. What this means, but putting the teflon bushings in the throttle shafts will fix that problem. You will also want to seal the vent hole at the base of late carbs. Unless you're a clever machinist the chokes will have to go, they were using two of them on a 2.4 liter engine. Here are a couple examples: This setup is in Russ Thuleen's Rampside. Note it also has A/C. This is Dennis Arendt's '68 at the Daytona convention that answers the question - "What if the Corvair had continued development, because the carbs are part of the boosted condition [talk to the guys at CB Performace about their blow-through VW's-carbureted]. I have a stock 180 with 2 modified Rochesters [reinforced floats, left the turbo distributor in and fired it up and it ran, I used model airplane fuel line because I had it and it has lasted 3 years now with many laps around PIR at last years convention.
