Blow-through set-ups are simple with Impco systems on V8 engines. The converter must be boost-referenced and this is done by connecting the balance port on the mixer's air horn to the vent port on the converter. It's a good idea to do this on NA engines too because referencing the converter to the mixer also compensates for dirty air filters, which keeps the fuel mixture constant at all times (once the engine is warmed up).
The problem with Impco mixers and converter is that they were never designed for high levels of boost. Once you get above about 8 psi, they start to leak.
Keeping the cooling system in good condition (including regular flush & fills) is important preventive maintenance for any engine, regardless of fuel.
had to check the price on pro pain ...80.9 cents a liter...and the tank size is about 75 bucks to fill ...but that was a while ago ..the bronco is parked till I can fix the posi or get a locker in the rear..the truck has blown one posi apart and smoked the second in less then 1500 miles...couldn't be operator error ..could it??
