Can't fool you....lol

Think about this....

1) a 2300 lbs. car making around 100 hp...hahaha

2) Do some research on the relationship between intake air temperature and power of an internal combustion engine (you might be surprised)

3) do the math and decide (if you had a choice) whether to mount a blower near the intake (coldside) or on top of the exhaust manifold (hotside)

4) a simple comparison is how much better car engines perform in cold weather.

5) In the case of a Miata 1.8l, strap a 62 cu.in. blower to a 100 cu.in 4 banger, boost it to 21 psi, inject methanol and tada....Then top it off with a 100 shot of nos (or better)....

A project im going to start soon
I have a garret turbo for a cummins 5.9L engine
Being a diesel turbo it doesnt have any blow off valves or waste gates
I already made a propane combustion chamber thats routed into the hotside of the turbo, the cold side run then back into the combustion chamber(forced induction).
With a flow valve controling the fuel you can change combustion levels and control the spool of the turbo
still working on the design of the afterburner from the exhaust but i would eventually like to put it on a modified go kart frame drunken

Nah...they'll figure out how to grow the OS so that even it will require at least 2 or 3 of those for the install...lol
