I think I'm going to try my wife'* blow dryer. I'll go to Radio Shack, buy an AC/DC converter, wire it up to the battery and plug it in. Then I'll wire up a remote switch and use electrical tape to attach it to the dash. When I want to go fast, I'll just flip the switch and Voila! Instant turbo!

I'd suggest just running a 1" diameter tube into the car and having your co-pilot blow when you yell "hit it!" That'd work pretty good with the right passenger!

Hair Dryer produces Hot-Air, so that would be bad. C'mon guys, gets yer heads out of yer butts.... Use a SHOP VAC!!!

Duh! :P

lol


I was also thinking, maybe tonight when I get home I'll take off my CAI and get out the garden hose. I heard water mist injection is supposed to do wonders for cooling the intake air, so maybe if I have a friend rev up my car and I shoot water in the throttle body with the garden hose and car wash nozzle, I'll get performance like I got

NNNNNNNAAAAAWWWWWWZZZZZ!!! Woo Hoo!! I'll let you know how it goes!

:P :P

Laugh it up. Eat my steam. I got 2 pounds more boost with a half-pint water bottle and 5/32" tubing.

My hair dryer has one of those "COLD SHOT" buttons on it, so I'll just hardwire that on all the time. But that shop vac idea might just work better....I'll report later!
