I get HotRod every month and that was a hoot to read.   Great redneck engineering though.

I bet you could rig up the blowers throttle to the gas pedal on the car... now that would be a hoot...

Actually they do,. but the ones you see are for 4 cylinders.  unfortunately I tried one on Polaraco.  All it did was screw up my computer.  Program is too old.  But it did actuallu make a difference

Mine either!  But it did help for a while, while it was in closed loop.  All I was doing was proving my therory.  Now I can make something work the right way.  But the injection system is the first item

I'm kinda dissapointed.  I wanted to see a leaf blower with a supercharger.
