Ah ha
A man after my own heart.
I have lots of experience with turbos and old cars so lets settle in.
Cfm is your main concern here. If you draw in the mixture of fuel into the hair dryer you will tarnish your rotor and cause bearing issues. Since running efi is not possible I would blow air into your carbs but at 5 psi you will want to increase your jet size to 5 times the current size which might not be possible with that current carb.
5 psi is 5 times more barrimetric pressure than sea level hence the five times more fuel needed to keep it acceptable.

i have a little experience with turbos also but my other concern with a blown carb would be is the stock fuel pump going to overcome to the boost? i have yamaha banshee 421 cub running 15lbs of boost on alcohol and i need to have a constant +4 fuel pressure as is 4lbs at idle and 19lbs at 15lbs of boost and so on.the turbo that is on the banshe is a decent size its a garrett m24 with a .80 compressor. the one i want to use on the polaris is a ihi vf14 wich is a small secondary turbo it doesnt matter how much boost i run weather it is 1lb or 20 i just want to see if i can get a little gain out of the motor with what i have at hand.

As odd as it sounds you may have to run an aux pumper connected to a relay which is triggered by a WOT switch. You are delving in the relm of experimental so building a fuel pressure regulator would help with controlling your now boosted aux fuel pumper.

by any chance would you know how much preassure the stock pump puts out maybe i could run 2-3 lbs with out working against the pump?

I do not know the current fuel delivery pressure. I would not be surprised if it were gravity fed.
