I've decided that the forced induction will be saved for another engine(probably a Predator).
Reason being is that this is my first go kart and engine, and as such I am attached to it. I tend to get attached to things that could kill or hurt me. Dogs, electronic equipment, go karts.
To make it clear everyone, I am not going to rig up a forced induction system on my Briggs and Stratton, but I plan to do it in the future with a different frame and a Predator 212 or the likes.
I simply don't want to risk screwing up my engine or frame, or simply being disappointed with the results.

'electronic equipment' means amateur radio equipment. For instance, I have two 12V 9Ah sealed lead acid batteries, and I treat them with almost the same respect as bombs.

Ummm...why? Its an SLA battery, you can't destroy one of those things even if you life depended on it. Now Li-ion batteries, more specifically the more fragile Li-po counterparts, those I can see if you treated them like bombs, and personally I do too.

Unless you took your nice soapy and and out it across the two terminals, 12V can't harm anything.

A cordless skillsaw is 18V. 18V is totally different from 12V .
