Went and picked up a stihl back pack blower and installed on the intake of the Motorhome. First try up our local hill and I will say I was impressed with the extra power. Not sure about fuel mileage increase yet but will get some results and pictures posted this afternoon.

iam willing to bet if you would have simply removed your factory air cleaner system and installed cold air intake tubes to the carb u will see the same results

Will be installing the banks kit next and hopefully the larger exhaust can keep up with the blower. Eventually I will get the throttle of the blower to sync with the gas pedal but for now its all manual control. I would love to dyno this I just donot know of a place that can house a Class A.

Here is a picture of the one we put on my buddies toyota, as you can see the hood has to be removed. With a class A everything tucks in real nice.

Put a bilge blower on your tail pipe. It not only sucks the power robbing gasses out of your exhasust, it pulls in intake air.
