This may seems silly, but it will give you some insight in to the way I think.
Since Nitrous Oxide is 33% oxygen, and the air we breath is roughly 21% oxygen shouldn't blowing compressed air in to the intake result in about 2/3 the horsepower gains that we see from nitrous? If you were to blow the air across the MAF sensor then the computer would add fuel and... Well you get the idea. And the air is still free.
