Nitro?

Im wandering what would be the best nitro kit to put on my truck. Its going to be a built 350, and its going to be my daily driver, but id like the nitrous for when i go to the strip. I need something affordable, and dependable.

Just buy a small kit that doesn't take a rocket scientist to tune,like a NOS Power Shot kit. Makes a good 125hp and you just need a healthy engine(not a oil user,smoker,etc.) It's just a simple kit.

Let me help you out a little with the proper descriptions....
Nitro is short for nitromethane, the liquid fuel used by Top Fuel and Funny Car drag racers. It is expressed chemically as CH3NO2.
Nitrous Oxide is a gaseous blend of 2 parts of nitrogen and 1 part of oxygen, expressed chemically as N2O.

You've obviously never used it correctly. In 20 years of using the stuff I and friends have never once lost an engine to it. Plates and foggers, 75hp to 300hp shots depending on the capability of the parts in the engine. 125 hp or less on a good condition stock V8 will last nearly forever if you follow directions. Cut corners and it will bite you.

70 CST/10, all the companies currently in the maket build quality stuff, all the shysters have been weeded out since the 1980's. Pick a entry level(150hp or less) plate system from whichever company you like and follow their directions to the letter and you will be fine.

I live in Spain, theyīre not so flexible here on power adders so using nitrous is not going to happen...............shame.

If I was 17 again with a nitroused motor Iīd be out of control, not a good mix.
