Bored and need entertaining.

Ok, I am half asleep and if anything all the wonderful colorful comments will keep me entertained.

I was thinking (I know I should not do that much, it hurts)
I saw all the BS electric 12V hairdryers on ebay and was trying to image how much PSI I would need to not mess up an ATX. I assumed it would have to more than 5psi just to feel a decent increase in power.... and no more than like 8 or so (to be safe). Like 130 to the wheels and I am happy. I am not trying to race ppl, just move alot nicer without the whinding sound. (even though it is nice)

Air compressor..... (might sound dumb). My brain started thinking since I saw one at Auto Zone for $99... small... and puts out 135 psi, all I would need is a power inverter. I understand that the psi will be different since its coming out of that little pressure hose and into a 2.5'' intake tube. and that the air would be going both ways..(toward the filter and mani) but for that, I was thinking about a vaulve that keeps the air flowing in one direction.

either I am thinking way too much... or not enough.
But I figure someone on here might have 2 cents to give me.... so I know whether to kick myself in the arsor not.
