old 2 stroke detroit diesels used blowers + turbos together, but not plumbed like that. going to call b.s here and say that the turbos are just there for show + the intake pipes are plugged inside so no air even goes through the turbos at all. or i could be wrong.

I know the guy who owns this car. He also owns the Silver truck with the double blower system and the 55 chevy with the twin turbos. His name is Brad. He has won the World of wheels a few times with the Camaro. I just seem to like the camaro with just the blower. The turbos make it look to cluttered.

I thought it had been done on one of the factory supercharged mustangs in one of the ford mags.

the only way it would work well is if the hat fed air only to the inlet side of the turbo, and the top of the carbs got only pressurized air from the turbo. after looking at the pic again noticed it may be set up that way. hard to tell.

Looks like all for show. Turbo blowing into the "injector" spacer over the carbs, cheezy throttle cable hooked to carb linkage to open "injector" butterflies, and why bother with bringing inlet air to turbo from non-functioning hat? Turbo/Roots blower combos have been done successfully over the years, tractor pullers did 'em for a while, and Chase Knight ran a dragster set up that way and did well with it. :cool: JB
