>From memory, the MG Metro Turbo had a turbo blowing
through a single SU Carb. The early Renaults, had a turbo
and a Weber downdraft. Fiat had a turbo in the late '70s
with a turbo, guessing it was a carb. The Fiat Spyder which
cam eto the USA also had a turbo - was it FI?
Most of these early systems had low boost (6psi), so getting
optimal fuel and ignition is not too critical. It only when you get
to > 10psi does ignition and fuel become crucial.
