The kind of thinking that makes '61 Corvairs more like

See the problem you have once you get in to talking about "extreme" is the basic physics of the pressure in the piping for that compressed air from front to back ( or other way depending on where you want to drive ) and because air is readily compressible ( unlike fluids ) you also generate contrl problems with the lag in the pressure front of the compressed air caused by the length of the pipework.

It's NEVER a great idea to think that putting extra weight is good just because it let you have 50:50. A behemoth doesn't handle well no matter what it's weight distribution

If you have reached the limit in terms of engine space then again the chassis has more than likely got many more issues to contend with without adding MORE power

Unless you are building a drag car or a tractor puller THen the rules are different
