VEGAS the trouble I see is the increase drag from the alternator to get the power required to add the hp, just may not be worth it.. what might you get? 2 to 5 hp if your lucky ...

to pump the HP into the blower might not be worth it, in fact if I remember correctly you cannot make free HP by just adding more air, it needs to be compressed to get more oxygen per square inch.. not just make it faster.. air.. as for 8 psi on the unit,,, i doubt very much it makes that when engine runs..

Technically, in a perfect world, 8psi would add a little over 100% power increase.

Mr.Bergner I need to find the thread on this where someone legitimately tried to prove these useful.

AllCarFan I seem to remember a leaf blower on a honda civiv on the dyno...picking up a good bit of HP.
