No. The combustion fan on the pioneer does not have any adjustment. It runs the full 45cfm all of the time. You can get a bigger fan but then you may start running into other problems (draft issues, coal levitating on the grate)
Why do you want more combustion air?

Plus, it would burn hotter and cause clinkers to form, possibly warping your grates too!!

Why do you need more air?
