Carbed turbo's are "interesting". It can be done and work well, but it's a heck of a lot harder to do than EFI. Those straight sixes really just become huge torque monsters with a turbo. I've seen a few 300s (the 240's big brother) pushing about 10 psi. They barely made 200 horsepower but they put well over 400 ft-lbs to the ground. I'm not sure that's the kind of engine you want in a car.
