sounds good to me !
blown surfaces have been around in military aircraft for over 50 years, using pretty hot air
exhaust gas is a mixture of nitrogen, water vapour, and carbon dioxide (quite a lot of the last two), and in this way quite different to air at the same temp & pressure ?
exhaust gas is still around ambient pressure ?
good luck with the thinking, though (sincerely)
