Really he was DQ'd for telling them they could "KISS MY ASS!!".
While I agree attitude was probably more the culprit of the DQ, I doubt the line pressure at the scavenging orifice on the intake is 35psi and it's definitely insignificant flow. The way I understood it is that the vacuum of the intake was the bigger advantage to deflating the tires just a few seconds quicker. 10-20cfm from a tire deflation system when that engine is probably sucking hundreds of CFM would be insignificant for overall HP
