and how fast does it force the air out? not in PSI but maby mPH?
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.
