    As a turbinecharger. Imagine the numbers with that in front of a large front mount intercooler.

    Um wouldn't the oxygen be used up already before forcing it into the engine?

    Yes.

    This is a turbine engine. It's compressing and igniting the fuel/oxygen inside the turbine. It's spitting out VERY hot, non combustible exhaust gasses. This not a turbo by any means.

    Exactly, here is a link to a more "simplified version"

    (I would hate to be this guys neighbour... )

    The only way to make this work would be to have the exiting gasses entering the turbine side of a non jet engine turbocharger, but wouldn't be of much use seeing as our engines do a well enough job of pushing our little hair dryers. Not to mention doubling everything up from throttle to fuel source would just be a pain in the ass.
