Its a good idea, however, I dont believe its very effective. Some briggs come stock that way.
My 18hp has a big hose from the shroud to the air filter.

It blows air in, but theres no way it would build up pressure so its not going to add any power.

I find it adds a bit more acceleration, it could be in my head but it feels like it to me.

what about 2 computer fans on either side of a 4inch piece of pvc, with filters in front of the fans and a hole in the side of the pipe going to the engine with a 12v motorcycle battery to power them?

They pump no where near enough air, they would just be a restriction. They wouldn't be able to compress the air.

I'd love to try a smog pump supercharger one day, my Toyota Corona doesn't need its smog pump, it's just robbing power .

Yes, you can. You need to get a gear drive that gears it up about 10-1(or more) and that can withstand the huge revs though.

Sideways, I'll track them down and send them to W. Aus. Once they're there, they're your responsibility to find.

Ok guys, ive been buildin go kart engines since i was 10. im completely self taught but am currently enrolled at TTU's engineering program due to my love for Design Engineering. im in the process of designing a cheap and affordable EFI system for gokarters and horsepower addicts like myself ive experimented with many types of small engine superchargers and had many MANY failed attemps, (EPIC FAILS) Lol. the only way to make any performance gains is to completely understand the concepts and principles involved here. the ONLY effective ways i have seen is to cut the buisness end off of a turbocharger and mount a pulley, with all sealed ball barings. or the blower off of a leafblower(barings and pulley/mounting brackets) ive grew up around this kinda stuff, my dads a certified maintenance man servicing all of TN with 25yrs experiance. my 1st cousin Adam owns Precision Auto Machine. so i know what im talking about. my whole family is into this sorta thing. Also try mounting a smogpump as a belt driven supercharger. YOU MUST USE a pull-threw disign with a gravity-fed(lawnmower) carburator, float-style. IT WILL WORK. have fun be creative. its all fun an games lol. also check out my gokart engine (my first build at age 10) on youtube. "EPIC Custom's Briggs Racing Engine build." ive since then built MANY engines including a LT1 pushing 890HP off pumpgas. please reply with any additional idea,

ANY GOOD THING CAN BE IMPROVED UPON!!!!
