There was a time when GM warrantied a setup like that.

1981 Turbo Trans Am

They actually did it multiple times.

1978 Regal Sport Coupe

1962 Olds Turbo Jetfire

I can't remember if the Corvair had a factory turbo if there was just a common conversion that got done.

This is the way 90% of carbureted turbo engines were done. F-85, Corvair, Buick Turbos, Ford 2.3 Turbos... They all done it that way.

The only factory blowthrough setups I can think of were the Esprits and the Maserwhatsis Bisomethingorother.

A lot of aftermarket setups, too. The fuel system becomes FAR simpler, since you don't have to box or boost-seal the carburetor, or boost reference the fuel system, which might be impossible depending on the fuel pump used.

You just need a turbo with a positive compressor seal. A lot of turbos don't have them, just a simple labyrinth seal that mostly keeps the oil out of the intake stream, and they don't cotton to being subjected to 20 inches of vacuum

This is one of the first iterations of the V8 head banger. Sesco made the block, I think Scat made the crank, not sure who made the cam. It sure isn't a very big cam with that stock valve cover..... But that may have been before the availability of reliable roller rockers and stud girdles, definitely before Jessel parts. And look it has the Coke machine freon pump for a fuel pump! Dr Frankenstein loved those vane pumps instead of the gerotor, I think they were more consistent because no aluminum body.
