Question An idea to get more air to the intake...Would it help?

I was at RadioShack today and while I was buying some switches to hook up some lights, I saw some cooling fans. I thought hm...Could they be used to help cool air get into the intake? Say you take off the vent and let air come in, and hook the fan up right under it and have it powered up, blowing air towards the intake. Could this help maybe 1hp? Was just an idea, dunno if it would help at all...

Only if it was a really fast fan... but that's called a turbo! (or a blower)

It wouldn't help more then a cold-air intake would, that is for sure. To take full advantage of a fan, you'd need to seal the channel it went the air towards the intake with - and even then you'd need a superfan to get enough air in there.

Get one of these for $299 and get an extra 1 psi boost.

I watched the video of the thing in action, and it generates enough thrust to fly upwards vertically when activated!
