Yes they will but not worth a crap, actually they will even run backwards. In the DD application, the blower is to get a cylinder full of fresh air. The blower pushes the exhaust out and fresh air into for the next power cycle. Doing a blower/turbo on a sled would be a complete waste. It takes hp to drive the blower, and if you want more, just wind up the boost.
