Ok ya'll are going to laugh at me but I had a stupid idea. If a guy could use an electronic boost controller or maybe some scratch built device, to moderate the speed of a DC blower motor in response to engine rpms (don't think it'd be that hard to do) couldn't you bascially build a forced induction system that way? The reason I ask, is because turbos cost a lot of money due to the expense involved in engineering them, but a simple blower motor forcing air into the intake wouldn't need to be engineered to spool up, etc. Anyone ever heard of someone trying something like that? I'm sure a dc motor could be found that would flow enough CFM's to work, and that moderating it's speed to work favorably wouldn't be terribly difficult. I'm sure a freer flowing exhaust would have to be installed for such a thing to work as well.
