    What would be the steps to doing a carb'd turbo, same as an FI car? What about fuel management, how would I go about adding the extra fuel needed?

    I was looking at the prelude and I kinda like it now. I dunno why, but I think it would be kinda nice if I fixed it up. When I finish up the civic I could make it my new project.

    It only looks like shit cause of the paint really and a b20a3-T wouldn't be too bad I don't think.

    Just a thought, if I can't make it quicker then I'm just gonna fix up the body, paint it, fix the speedo and put a new clutch in and call it the new DD.

    Ok, so I did a little searching. I highly doubt they make any carb upgrades for the prelude so it looks like I'm pretty much beat on that unless I run super low boost.

    From what I've read it the turbo's extra pressure will end up pushing the fuel back down the fuel line. Maybe I'm wrong, maybe I just don't understand carburation well enough.

    FMU's were developed for carb'ed motors.

    they work wonders on them.

    ohh my hopes are back up. Maybe I'll upgrade the hatches turbo and put the 42/48 on the prelude.

    it's possible. some of the fastest road track cars are carb'd turbos.

    yes...they do.

    Prelude S's were carb'd and I think there was a late EF civic that was also.

    Actually they even made carb's motors for the EG's, just not in the US. The d14 was carbed I think.

    my eg stock motor was a carbrator powered engine.

    well i swaped that a long time ago, i pushed it to much it went cherry red and perhaps my gaskets were cracked cause it was close to detination!
