"but the air for the engine and turbo isn’t sucked in from the atmosphere, but blown in by a small, compact jet engine. No, really."

This line had me thinking that the jet was blowing air into the intake directly which would have used up all the oxygen and be really hot. Sounds like they are using the turbine exhaust to spin the hot side of the turbo and then the compressed air from that goes to the engine which make more sence.
