Default Forced induction for a carb'd car....

Aside from Paxton's supercharger kits, or the Weiand roots blower, what else is out there for those of us who are running carb'd motors? I've searched around and can't find a damned thing. Any recommendations? I've always had a soft spot for blown 'stangs more than the giggle gas!

Oh, and my motor is an 89 longblock.... Just converted to carb for my 86 302 swap car..

There's not TOO much difference between boosting an EFI motor vs. a carb motor. There's a few companies making carb hats, and then you need to replace/modify your carb for blow-thru.

Not too complicated sounding. I'd probably ditch my edelbrock intake and edelbrock carb completely for that new Weiand intake with either a Holley or Demon carb...

Under boost the intake manifold isn't going to make a whole hell of a lot of difference, unless you're talking the n'th percentile on a really maxed out combo. Save your money

if using a centrifugal make sure the carb is set up for it or your gunna blow the seals right out on it. some companies make carbs specifically for it too.
