$1000????? Blah. Can't you buy a 7.5 hp complete engine for much cheaper than that anyways??

I have a better idea.....link coming. :)

Ok, here ya go. http://www.iboats.com/boatproducts/mallsearch/blower/

It's a boat bilge blower (same thing as that crappy electric supercharger they sell for cars).

The difference is that it'll flow way more CFM than you even need for a go-cart, but not near enough for a car. $20-$60.

You'll just need a small battery or something to run it with. But it sure beats $1000. :drive:

I didn't say it was cheap. Just cool.

And what if you are racing in a class with a displacement limit?

I don't even know if that exists, just saying...

Actually, you didn't say either, just that it was an idea.

I was giving alternative ideas, and more feasible ones. Just trying to help. :cheers:
