  • Not long, given the looks displacement/HP/Torque. 

I’d like someone to correct me if I’m wrong, but that looks more show than go.  I imagine the lag having such a large turbo on a what’s maybe a 3 liter at most, probably less, would be huge. You’d be half way down the track before it kicked in. Same with the jumbo carb, wouldn’t you need to jet it down to nothing to keep it from flooding? Most setups I’ve been around have two small turbos and Weber’s or something designed for smaller engines.

You are correct, sir.

But never forget that having no clue as to how stuff actually works has never stopped people from slapping the biggest available carb/turbo/supercharger/whatever on something.

There were (probably still are) plenty of bone-stock 350 Chevys with two Holley 1150-CFM carbs...which is only about 1650 CFM more than that engine can possibly use.
