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..
