I read somewhere (possibly here) that in a supercharger draw thru carb set-up, the carb has to be much larger than stock to gain anything...I.E You'll max out a small carb;
However on a blow thru
carb set-up, the carb size was'nt going to be an issue so long as the fuel jets were large enough to deliver.
Is this true? Is it becausen in a blow thru the fuel is pressurized as much as the rest of the carb?
Help me to understand this.
I'm starting to worry that my Yaw might be too small for my Eaton M-62 - 12A project.
However, according to a graph on the Eaton site, the model blower I have pushes only slightly more than my carb can flow at atmospheric. (Carb can flow 425 cfm, blower 450 cfm @ 5 psi @ 14K RPMs.)
BTW, with these numbers, does it sound like I'll have decent power?
AHHHH! The more I learn, the more questions I have!
The biggest thing I've learned is that all is not absolute in a project like this. Mathmatically, and theoretically, things seem to work out so much better on paper than in real life!
