Default How easy is it to Run a Turbo on a Carb'd 351w Fox?

Hey what's up guys, I was thinking of some plans for the winter. And I was wondering how easy it would be to Turbocharge my 351W Fox.
By easy I mean in general, running the piping, headers and the custom air box. And even as far as jetting and tuning are concerned. And I'm not really farmiliar with the popular brands were that sold kits. I've heard Carbed Turbo setups react well, due to the Venturi in the carb. Beyond that, I've seen time and time again how the turbocharged cars make alot more power espeically in the top end range. But I'm thinking the torque alone of my motor should be enough to help the low end.
Any responses are aprecaited, I'm just looking to learn a little.
Thanks

It's no sweat, just gotta get the right kind of blow thru carb.
Then just use a $160 "carb hat" to connect boost piping to carb

B&G Turbo makes a 351W turbo kit
or you can do a simple twin turbo kit using flipped BBK headers and Garrett T3/T4's and custom down tubes.
Space is a little bit of an issue, but can be worked around for sure.

I'm using realitively small twin turbos on my 351W and should have almost instant full boost before 2,000 rpm. (KB eat your heart out)
It will limit my top end power, but I dont care about 800+rwhp, 600 is plenty for me.

I would also like to know which would be best, the draw thru or the blow thru set-up.
Seems to me that carbs like cool air so my logic is telling me draw -thru.....
