Ok, I did a search on here and the turbo forums and couldn't find any conclusive answers about the positioning of the carb hat.

What would be the best position for the opening of the CSU carb hat? There is NO divider in the hat.

So far the way the turbo is set up in the engine bay there will only be about 6" from compressor outlet to carb hat.

Thanks

For ease of tuning 6 or 12.
If it is a standard hat you will need a spacer to clear the float screw.

? ive got 2 csu hats both clocked at 12 straight over the back bowl, no issue clearing anything , bowl screw is cleared pretty easy.
My CSU does not need the spacer. The standard EV has more more droop and needs the spacer for straight up or down.

My main concern is that I've heard of fuel distribution issues.

Do these possible tuning issues arise right away at lower boost levels or are they more prevalent at higher boost levels (max effort)?

The combo I'm trying to put together us meant to be a mild build not all out race car......yet. LOL

I'm looking at around the 7 or 8 o'clock position and basically wondering if anyone thinks there will be an issue setting it up this way?
The CSU hat clears everything no prob.

With the CSU hat there are no issuses. Just clock it where it work best for you. Then fit the pipe and blow off and good to go. Dude I have all the shit you do been there done that only with a Vortech Ysi. Ignintion dig6 with a BTM thats the cheepest way to go.

6 or 12 are the best options, but others will work.

I would make a suggestion, run the pipe from the turbo to the hat in a way that give you more pipe then less. The larger the distance between the turbo and hat, the more heat reduction you will have.

Never thought about that, how much heat reduction? Lets say you add an additional 2 feet of pipe before the carb?
