    Default Electric turbo leaf blower???

    So a leaf blower can potentially produce two pounds of boost. At 7 percent per pound thats about 23hp. If i connected the leaf blower to the compressor side of a turbo im thinking i could double the boost. Say 4 psi. So (again in theory) 46hp. Which is almost exactly our 200 hp cap. Plus id have boost at all times even from dead stop. So id have power from a stop which would be every caliber sxt 2.0 owners dream. Do you think our fuel map would adjust for 4 psi. Any other foreseen issues? Thinking about buying a chordless leaf blower and hooking it all up.

    Nothing ventured, nothing gained, right? I'd sure be curios to hear how that works out for you.

    No no one has ever done it successfully. One fella on here tried and did not succeed in getting it to work.
