Turbo charging with carburators

Anyone know of some good sites with info for force induction but with carburators instead of Fuel Injection?

A friend of mine is turbo charging his 351 V8 with a blow through carb, I THINK he went with an Edelbrock carb but I'm not 100% sure, I'll have to ask him. From what I've heard, is that there are some really good results from blow through carbs with force induction.

Pick Up the book "Maximum Boost" by Corky Bell, its pretty much the hands down best place to start to learn how to build a turbo sytem. Theres definitly alot more out there to learn, but this book will give you a wealth of information if you've never done it. I know people who have built there custom turbos entirly only on knowledge they learned from this book. (I'm not recommending that though). Hope that helps a bit, if I remember correctly he does cover a bit about boosting carbed motors will pull-threw and blow-threw setups, its been a while though since I read it.

Have installed my own SC setup on my bimmer and know well on how it works, although that's with fuel injection a good ECU & a MAF + an O2sensor.
I do not know how FI will work on a carb with none of that, since I may break down and get the idea to turbo my sled &/or quad.
