Somebody in a magazine has already tried one of these. I don't remember which. They found that it did work, but only made a little under a 1 psi of boost. It did increase HP, but the unite that they tried cost like 800 dollars. That's not a lot of power verses cost. A Re-flash was cheaper and made more power.
You could not be more wrong... Look at a gas turbine engine. Turboprop, turboshaft, turbojet, turbofan... ALL of them spin the ENTIRE engine, hundreds of pounds of metal, spinning at 10,000+ RPM, off of exhaust gasses and STILL have enough energy left over from hot expanding gasses to provide extra thrust, bleed air, AND drive a generator to provide huge amounts of electricity.
NEVER, EVER, EVER underestimate the power of hot expanding gasses.
Just a few things that run off of expanding hot gasses:
- Steam Locomotives
- Nuclear power plants
- Nuclear Submarines and Aircraft carriers
Turbine's can be insanely efficient and powerful. Hot expanding gasses pack a hell of a punch, and driving a turbine is a great way to harness that energy...
