Default Playing around with a Chevy and a leaf blower

Finished tuning the Nova a little early yesterday, and we had a pretty big leaf blower sitting around the shop. Of course we couldn't resist a bit of horsing around...



Funny thing is, it put less power down than the red Miata...

I saw a vid awhile back of some people doing the same thing on a civic. They used an electric leaf blower though, and the last couple runs they opened a bottle of nos by the blowers intake. Surprising gains even before the nos.
