Default Blow-through Mikuni setup?

Looking at running a turbo on my bike (carb'd) and will need to set the carb up for use as a "blow-through". The carb is a Mikuni HSR42.

Can anyone point me in the right direction as to where I need to start with this?

All of my carbed were draw through
Because;
You have to keep the float bowl at the same pressure as the carb mouth.
And your fuel pressure must be slightly higher than the carb inlet.

The bowl vent should fine for the first and there a pressure referenced fuel pumps available.

And the y-pipe needs to be 321 grade stainless or your second one will be.

Don't you run into issues with fuel not completely vaporizing, and then ending up inside the intake tract?

I never worried about that.
The turbo does a fine job of mixing.

Just make sure the plenum has smooth corners.
