Leaf-Blower Supercharging a 1978 Chevrolet Monza Spyder! - Roadkill Episode 16
On this episode of Roadkill, it's fun with Leaf Blowers. Experts on the
Internet said it would never work. That's never stopped Freiburger and
Finnegan, and this time on Roadkill the guys put the theory to the test:
can hardware-store leaf blowers supercharge an engine and make power? Step
one was buying a '78 Monza Spyder with a 305 V8 and a four-speed stick.
Step two was to take it to the shop of HOT ROD Drag Week racer Jeff Lutz to
tune it up, swap the engine to a 350, Dyno test it with five leaf
blowers, and do a whole bunch of needless burnouts. Step three was to drive
the Monza to Willmington, Ohio, for the East Coast Timing Association's
Ohio Mile event, a standing-mile race where they'd find out if leaf-blower
power adds up to more speed in the real world. The outcome? Who really
cares? Because on Roadkill, it's always about the adventure. And more
Roadkill appears every fourth Friday on the Motor Trend channel.

Forced Induction - Supercharger vs. Turbo Charger
This video was made to describe in moderate detail the differences between
Superchargers and turbo Chargers, as well as describing the
components, advantages, and disadvantages to each. Complementing the
speaking track is a slideshow of related pictures and videos. I hope this
video helps some of you curious up and coming mechanics to better
understand methods of forced induction. Please comment maturely, and
