You are kidding, right? What are the peak pressures in a blown intake
system?

I pulled the Holley 4v carb off a '77 460 the other day and I'm confused
about what exactly I have. I'm hoping that you all can help.
It's a square bore, vac. secondary, electric choke carb, with fuel inlets
front and rear. The airhorn is stamped with list #3310-1, 2357 is stamped
just below. There is no Ford ID tag on the carb.
Is this a stock model 4160?? What size??

TIA

The #3310 is a vac. secondary 750 cfm. I think it was originally produced
for like a '66 Corvette although I don't know if they used a different list
# for that application. Don't think they were a factory offering on
anything else. The electric choke is interesting; probably a Holley
conversion kit as I think these came with a manual choke.

Depends on the boost level being used. It probably isn't a problem with
most of the relatively sedate over the counter blower kits available but
start looking for serious hp and I suspect it can happen.

One of the guys on a turbo list I belong to runs around 14.5 psi of boost
and claims 182 psi at the carb in a blow thru application. I'm not sure how
he calculated that and I don't know if that translates to 182 psi at the
intake valves (plenum volume would lower that I would think at least
initially) but if it does that figure is well above the closed spring seat
pressure that most of us would be running.

He's got a pretty good home page documenting his low-buck 351 twin turbo -
