Gen 1 sbc turbo fuel system

Post by cv67 » Thu Jan 16, 2020 8:12 am

How simple could this be done? Not considering doing it myself but sure wonder sometimes, cant be the only one
Can this be done with a mech fuel pump? What mods to carb?
No specifics on size of turbo, boost etc. Wondering what some of you have done
See lots of turbo ls stuff but why couldnt this be done with the older stuff also?

Yeah people do it all the time. Its easy if you have a fuel tank that accepts intank style pumps. Two walbro 255’s will support 1000 whp efi on gas and they are around 100$ each or less.

Even external electrical pumps taking fuel from a sump tank is fine. Thats done so often.

Mechanical pump sure, as long as it flows enough to support the power.

I’ve done two 400” twin turbo deals, a twin turbo 555 bbc now, and a stock 305 sbc tpi car with a rear mount 70mm turbo for a daily driver
