    Less weight. I think the old stand by is that 100 lbs. off the front of the car is good for 1/10 of a second at the track. You have 85 lbs. or so to go.

    I heard you can use it as a vacume pump, to decrease crank case pressure.
    Is it possible?

    I dont know if it can be done with the one on our cars but i have seen it done on foxbody's with their smog pump. you only need a vacumme pump if you have a really really big cam i think though.

    This is gonna sound unbelievable, but I think they rigged them to suck a vaccum on the crankcase to kind of help pull the pistons down. And help with ring seal too.

    Only proven way I know is to sell the air pump on Craigslist. Then use the money to buy gas. Then use the gas to make HP. Vacumn pumps are more like for oil control than anything else.
