Wanted to ask which fan you recommend. I was going to go with one of these:

Maybe even the 8" and turn the speed down if needed.

This paired with the bofa (while expensive) might give me the sound levels that would let me run this for a lot longer than just a few minutes at a time.

Some have said that the noise is amplified by the vent hose, and that using the type of hose with a layer of insulation (or just insulating what you have) cuts down on it significantly. I haven’t tried that yet, but mine is in a basement where I can deal with the noise.

As for booster fans, this is the one I went with:

Fantech FR 125 Inline Centrifugal Duct Fan, Molded Housing, 5", 148 CFM

It’s kind of expensive, but I wanted something leak-proof. Most fans are not sealed, so you get smoke escaping from every seam and hole. It’s also very quiet, as these things go.
