I have a 88 corolla sr5 with a 4a-f and I was wondering about something. If I ducted a fan into the intake for the carb how would this effect my performance and in what ways could it hurt my car if any. Just wondering because someone told me it was a bad idea. Just wondering. Any advice would be helpful.

It is a bad idea, because not only are you getting hot air from the radiatior fan, you are depriving the engine of much needed cooling, especially when idling.

it blocks airflow and you cant get enough flow with a fan from a computer... using common sense is allowed :rolleyes:

flashmn, share the wealth

I admire your carb set up. Please tell me how you did this, and did it help? I was thinking of making a plate to mount a 4bbl to it but if you can do THAT, I'd like to try it too.

Guys take it from someone into R/C flight. Electric turbo/supercharging will never work never ever ever and 640kb or ram is enough for everyone.

The most powerful thing you're going to get electric would be a two motor 4" ducted fan setup, stepping down to the intake manifold.

1) A car battery wouldn't support it. Period...
2) You STILL wouldn't move enough air to do some good.
The age old addage is that it takes 15hp to turn a supercharger making hp. The most powerful setup in EDF (electric ducted fans) only puts down about 7hp worth of power. (745watt = 1hp)
3) We have not started to talk about the poor design of the ducted fan blades, for pushing air into an engine, it's inefficient to begin with
4) you can't stack them, as every time you do that, you loose 75% efficiency on subsequent fan setups.
