Setup a linkage like dual carbs.

after reading this subject i dont think oxygen would be a viable source of more power. an average airtank like the ones used for aviatior'* breathing oxygen 99% moisture free wieghs about 20 pounds for a medium sized steel tank, although they do make lighter ones out of differnet material. But the weight of the tank and oxygen are not an issue here, the issue is if you were to inject a pure oxygen source into the airbox or anywhere in the iduction section, and the oxgen, whene it arrived at the back of the intake valve would react with the gasoline, igniting it uncontrolable, hence pure oxygen or an oxygen rich enviroment will casue uncontrolled burning of petrolum, i do not suggest trying this, the idea of an air tank under extreme pressure like 3000 to 5000 psi regulated at 100 would be more viable and less harmfull to the engine......

nickyyyyyyyyyyyyyy

It'* a doable....But would that so much time effort and work, you could have just gone and swapped in a */C'd 3.8 and getting the volume of air right would be a PITA....And I think the plastic upper intake would explode....That would be kinda cool to see....Haven't seen that one before.....Great....now I wanna blow something up.....any ideas?
