To do this you need time, money, and knowledge. And you need to have lots and lots of at least two of those.

You would have to build your engine stronger to handle the air and then you would need lots of more fuel (bigger injectors) and lots of fabrication. Lots of people have done it If you search the threads you can find builds so you can see all thats involved..........

Ya, the fuel needed to turn one of those "wind turbines" would be a little too much for my sticks.. lol
