Oh sh** that was so fu***** funny!!!!! I tried not to visualize that picture in my head - Riding some big sloppy fat beast-chick, and your friends walking in on you during your "ye-haw" expression (hands in the air, and her grunting like a boar).

I've actually seen a video of this somewhere - I think it was on putfile.com or some website that host car videos. 1 run was just with the leaf blower, and a second run was with a leaf blower and Nawz!!!

The thing did put up some incredible numbers, but who the heck is going to hold a leaf blower in your intake while you are barreling down the track!

the leaf blower vid is also on streetfire. but if you look at the dyno chart it looks like they had some detonation. but i wouldn't buy it.
