Will a turbocharger ignite the A/F mixture as it passes through it?
There are also "blow though" designs that have the turbo before the carb. Some use a special carb that is designed to deal with the pressure the turbo creates. Others use a housing around the carb so that the inside and outside of the carb are pressurized equally, resulting in no leaks due to pressure differentials. /forums/images/graemlins/cool.gif
Turbochargers and superchargers go back a lot further than EFI. Carbs have been used with forced induction many, many times before. You have to have heat or spark to ignite. The pressures in the intake and carb are still very small compared to those in the combustion chamber where knocking (detonation) occurs.

Geez, I hope not. I've got a draw-thru turbocharger on my old BMW motorcyle. 'Hate for it to go boom so close to the "boys" /forums/images/graemlins/shocked.gif /forums/images/graemlins/rotfl.gif
