No -  but the principle of through or blow through is to explain:
It is more easy to understand looking at a carburettet engine:
US muscle cars, dragsters use holley carb mountet at top of the blower.
The blower is integrated with the intake manifold and sucks the
air/gasoline through the carb. That don't fit under the hood!

A blow through system consist of an enclusure around the carb or the carb
been made gasoline and air teigh (from innerside presure)
The blow through principle is the one to use for fuel injected engines,
because you
have the air first, and at the latest point the fuel.
You can study the principle at Vortec, ATI ProCharger and Paxton.
The fuel pressure regulator "just" have to use the boost pressure instead
of the athmosphere as reffering pressure. Then the carb or fuel injectors
will give that more gas depending of boost. And if the belt to the
compressor wreck - no problem. The engine is the good old one.
But if you don't have knock sensor, you will have to reduce timing..
