turbo qz

well its more as a joke but how exactly does a turbo work?
and how fast does it force the air out? not in PSI but maby mPH?

was wanting to do a ghetto turbo for my truck for shits n giggles with my leaf blower, think that would work? power wouldnt be a prob, just thought it would be funny, any ideas?

A turbo is basicly a compressor that runs off exhuast gases.

Do not use a leaf blower.

If you really want a turbo, take your car to a speed shop and get an estimate. No offense, but I do not think you have the knowledge to make your own kit.

The other measure of air intake is CFM = cubic feet per minute. Take the volume of the engine and convert it into cubic feet then multiply by the RPM and divide by two - that's your CFM for a given RPM.
I think we figured out that the 3.5L sucks down about 400 CFM @ 6500 RPM. So, if I've get my conversion factors right (and it's been awhile) that comes out to about a 50 gallon drum of air PER SECOND.
Of course, at idle it would only be about 5 gallons per second ... your leaf blower might be able to do that.
