In reply to # 3659651 by ohlord (which the op didnt bother) to read the article he linked to.

Your 2nd link is the one the op didnt tske the time too read fully and understand, before he chastised others.
His toy store fans drawing .25 hp will lose power.


A real system desigh pictured below
70,000 rpm in less than 0.4 second, supplying 8.7 psi of boost powered by regeneration stiored in 10 supercapacitors that capture energy during deceleration.


In reply to # 3659656 by bills We had a guy that did this back in the old days. It was on a TR-3, and he fitted one fan to each SU, using racer's tape. He did before and after acceleration runs (we didn't have many dynamometers in town back then). His times dropped significantly, rather predictable as the 'superchargers' were restricting flow through the carbs. One would expect similar results today.

See https://jalopnik.com/this-is-the-difference-between-an-electric-turbocharger-1795017793

and a good article here http://www.roadandtrack.com/car-culture/a8965/why-electric-superchargers-make-sense-now/

There is another solution to have boost (extra hp) without introducing a complex electronics/electric motor/induction in the loop; it is to use inertial wheel like what they were using in Formula one few years ago. It is neat way to store energy.

But less obtrusive than strapping a couple of these on, I expect....and they might make the car too wide for normal parking spots if you went for symmetry and bolted one to each side!

With very careful packaging you MIGHT be able to carry enough fuel in and around an MGB to run it for almost half a second... maybe... by which time you'd really, REALLY want to shut it off. (Something like 120,000lbs of thrust I think, more than the rocket engines of our first space missions.)

Wait a moment.... what about one or two of those ultra small jet engines used in RC models? Those would move some air...

5 gas powered leaf blowers moved some air. The trouble seems to be they can't move air under pressure.
