The Detroit Diesel turbo-compounding engines do not blow the intakes.

They convert exhaust gas heat and pressure into further mechanical work through a series of "turbo-like" turbines.

Not to mention the added weight and complexity of this as an exhaust based power system is not practical on a bike, especially a single cylinder which is much more affected by a tuned pipe.
