Our 2 strokes don't have an exhaust valve so the only reasonable solution is to use an expansion chamber to provide backpressure. Unfortunately this makes for an extremely peaky motor. One that isn't well suited to riding in the city.

Works great on the salt flats tho.

A hair dryer is not going to work. It moves air around well but it won't create any pressure. People have played around with this before using computer fans. If you search some you will find out what they discovered from their experiments.
