Needless to say it really isnt fesible to do because of at least 10 reasons.

I give ya credit for the idea, but I don't think it will work right

Might as well put a bush hog on there while your at it.

All of you must be brimming with ideas on how we could figure out whey it wouldn't work. But I didn't put this up for people to post their clever little remarks that have nothing to back them up. If you post something that says something such as I have 10 reason why it wouldn't work and then goes of and talks about a supercharger. When you say something won't work you may think it sounds clever but you should really think about what your saying. I'm not talking about building a city on the moon. I never said how many horse power gain you would get from it so when you say it wouldn't work you are saying it would give you no engine boost what so ever. And if you have proof of that please tell me how you know that there is know way it would work wait know you would be willing to give me ten reason why it would not give you any horse power gain. Please tell me I'm very intrested in the knowledge you have to share with the rest of us.

Alright man, It seems the other members were playing a little as we've encounted this question before.

It will work to a degree, It'* just not something alot of us want to try out. If you go with an electrical unit your gains will be non existant due to the extra strain on the alternator. If you go with a gas unit you've got to remember to start it up, put fuel and oil into it, and listen to it. You've also got the logistics of how to throttle it, where to dump the exhaust and where to intake. You've got to filter the incoming air after the "blower" to try to stop anything coming down the pipe, such as "blower" peices it if goes out in a blaze of glory. You've got to worry about that fuel tank busting a leak and fuel getting to your exhaust manifolds or other hot areas. Basically it'* a whole lot of work for an unproven and dirty method.

I didnt want to waste my time giving all the reasons why it would be a waste of time. I believe many of them were already mentioned in breif. Somethings just arent worth putting that much effort into.

room
heat
velosity
capacity
exhaust
timing
linkage
control
cob job
now that you have over come all the above obsticals, make it run right

Just do it if you want to know. Should'nt take more than a Saturday afternoon to do an initial cob job mock up. It should do something up to a certain Rpm range. I beleive what everyone is saying here in short is "do I want this in my car ? " " NO ! "

I suggested the blower unit hooked up to the engine accesory belt, this would eliminate a few of the above problems but would still most likely leave the engine short of breath at higher RPM'* with no boost pressure. Stick you open hand over the intake of a running engine someday and you will get the idea real quick. There is serious velosity and volumn entering a engine. No vacumn cleaner or leaf blower can compare.
