the car flows the same through the exhaust as it does through the intake. That and there is nowhere to put it without custom headers or something.

Hey wait, I have a better idea. If the leaf blower doesn't have the CFM to match the bonnie engine, then supercharge the leaf blower !!!! Might I suggest a hair dryer????? (on the cool setting of course)

This one got way out of control. It started as a serious question, and turned into the lounge.

On topic would be cool.

two leafblowers might do the trick, although I think it would be easier to just get a real SC. Thats one of the problems of having a pretty big displacement, if we had 2.0L engines then the leaf blower MIGHT work, electric would be a much easier way to go, when you think about all the cables and stuff you would have to use for a gas powered blower.

Another thing you'll have to consider is

1.) if you're goin with a gas blower.. well you'll have to make sure that the fuel don't spill and or be effected by the heat of the engine..

2.) The sound.. it'* going to be odd to pull up to somebody hearing either a gas or an electric fan going ( mini rice sound from gas leaf blower )

3.) You're not able to still get boost though as there'* only so much air you can compress with it ( say 2 psi max? )

4.) how you going to duct cold air for the leaf blower, and if so. how much turbulance are you goin to get and restrictions?

5. ) How long can those blowers last from excessive heat and use?

good point, an electic one would overheat pretty quickly.
