Air injection?

So I was painting with an air powered spray gun, and couldn't help but noticed how well the paint vaporises... Acetone does too, and gasoline really does! sooo What is we eliminated the stock Idle Air Control Valve, and used it to meter a pressurized line? Use two, sandwiching the fuel injector, like a paint gun. The throttle blades would be moved up the intake. That way at low throttle, the fuel injector isn't spraying directly onto the throttle blade, killing your fuel mixture.

Some vehicles come stock with belt driven air pumps that are for pumping air into the exaust, for emissions. Use that.

What do you guys think? One potential advantage of TBI vs MPI is there is time and space for the fuel air mixture to mix, for super fine droplets, and more complete burning of the fuel, and better fuel economy.

85 Chevrolet. 30 MPG or bust!
