Blower Question

I took the Jag out today after 3 days of electrical work in the steering colum, while I was out driving around I notice a guy driving around with a Blower on a nice Ford Galaxy. Yes it was the real deal the huge whine and that fat belt gave it away. Then I started thinking how do you keep such an air sucker from ingesting things that are gonna mess up the engine? All that he had what the scoop and throtle plates. Could bugs, leaves paper or what ever do in that motor?

howziit guy!

you're correct; that blower is one huge vacuum cleaner! it'll suck anything that gets close to the scoop's inlet.

of course, there's a metal screen at the inlet, at two small 6"X3" air cleaners inside the scoop.

when i install my 6-71 supercharger with dual 750cfm carbs, i'll install a 21X10X4" ram air box, with 5" tubes.

that oughta feed that sucking blower!.
