There is nothing wrong with adding a set of basic forged pistons to your cheap near stock nitrous motor.

But again this will not save your &&^%, and is not a substitute for good knock resistant fuel. (high octane)

If you want to build a strickly pump gas big shot powerfull nitrous motor, build it with a LOW COMPRESSION RATIO
just as you would a pump gas roots blower motor.

Methanol is a really good pwerfull high octane fuel, relatively cheap.

But when methanol is used for the nitrous fuel, it is hard to tune for , for a few reasons.

But when the motor is powered by methanol (methanol carb) and high octane gasoline is used for the nitrous systems fuel.
its easier to tune for,,... ( And very very effective)

Conversly water/methanol injection is very effective too. say with a gas motor/gas nitrous system ...

Water is very good at cooling the charge and taming combustion.
