Good ideas & concepts-but, that is one complicated looking engine, between the 2 turbos, air compressor, tank, etc. There's a lot of weight there, too.

Seems pretty simple to me, guys.

Seems odd that they chose not to use pressure from the turbo similar to a bleed air system to fill the tank.

It's just an interesting idea is all I was getting at. I'm sure it's more stuff to go wrong and will go wrong as the vehicle ages.

Interesting. However it's used on a turbo diesel engine. I didn't think these motors were available in the USA?

HP air assist is not new or innovative. Not sure it needs to be incredibly high pressure or high quantity. Id think this system would be easy to implement and bypass if need be.
