    Nowadays it would be tuff to get an inspection sticker (around here) with a tunnel ram.
    T type pull lever and a button to act like a lock release.
    Sorta like a Nitrus set up cept with a blower.

    Although i did see a setup with a specialized waste gate that allowed that very thing to happen with a clutch engaged system. The lower crank pulley still turned the belt but the upper blower assembly had a clutch like an AC unit.
    When you pulled the T handle the clutch would engage and voila a blower.
    BUT, it ran like total doggy poo when the blower wasn't running.

    Not enough compression.
