Default Compressed Air System

Has anybody seen a video clip of the CAS system boosting a 435hp 1st gen camaro to 840hp without mechanical issues? Its a fairly new system that uses compressed air to supercharge.

Default Air in a CAN

Hi OX, I would like the URL ?

I have "self powered" turbochargers (WW-II vintage) with little interest by customers.
Drag cars, in the 60's, operated using their own Oxygen (LOX) bottles for a short period before being banned by track owners.
I have assembled/tested AID engines.
I am in another current project (AID) using a S-10 four cylinder.

They explain how it works and stuff, it seems intresting but I'm not sold on it yet. Still the concept is cool. If you come across a video of the engine using it or please post.

I think needing to store massive air cylinders in your vehicle is stupid, why not build a motor that just makes power.

I've seen a similar vid on youtube which the ppl behind it were former nitrous oxide (founders) employees.
