you're an idiot who talks about shit he has NO FUCKING CLUE ABOUT

the blower is driven off the timing gears and is the only thing moving air through the engine
so yes it'll smoke out the air cleaner
and if you load it down hard it'll scuff up the rotors from the heat of pumping exhaust

ETA: but yeah the oil pump don't work going backwards either
