Default leaf blower super charger?

This thought started while I was sitting in a friends garage and noticed his leaf blower had the tubing size about the same size of a CAI tube or close enough I could adapt it some how. Now my question is this. Has it been done? Could it be done? Would attaching the tip of the hose to the tube of your intake hose give you a good boost?

you would need an inverter to run it, and lots of space. I have never heard of someone running one on a Bonnie, I dont know if they are big enough to satisfy our engines.

This was posted before by someone else.

No it can't be done, don't even try it, and stop thinking so much and just drive the car. Thanks.

LOL

Yeah... Ya know some people have real leaf blowers, you only need an inverter if it'* electric... Anyway, It would have to put out 450cfm juist to match the engine @6k, so 550cfm would be minimum. I've never seen a leaf blower that was rated that high.

I was thinking of a gas leaf blower. But my idea was to have a throttle line run to your gas peddle so when you pressed your peddle you would rev both engines. The only reason I brought this up because I have been thinking about doing it when I get my dream car (1996 Buick Regal). But even than I most likely would have get the supercharged model think its a GLS or something close.

make sure you have plenty of duct tape and cable ties for this install.

The Supercharged model of the Regal is the GS. You won't be buying a 96 supercharged GS because the first year for that was 1997. and yes, they are very nice cars.
