Ok I have got a new 351 going back together and was wondering if it is possible or feasable to run a turbo and carb on the street? Ive got 10:1 compression right now so I know I shouldnt run much boost, but could I?

Sure you can. A month or 2 ago, there was a guy in MM&FF running 9's with a blow-through carb setup. I know there are a couple on www.turbomustangs.com that do, and there are probably a couple here.

You have to get solid floats, mill the choke horn, block off the hole for the choke arm, jet it mega-fat to start with. Some install the 50CC accelerator pump, some don't. Most I have read about go to about a 3.5 or so power valve. You'll need a rising rate fuel pressure regulator (Mallory 4309 is the one that seems to pop up the most) and a fuel pump that can do at least 7psi more than the amount of boost you will run (10psi of boost needs 17psi of fuel pressure, for example). I am sure I missed a few things, though. ;)

[edit] With 10:1 compression, I wouldn't run much boost...
