Race gas has no road use tax on it. Same thig with off road diesel or farm fuel.


If it is pumped directly into your tank, obviously you are going torun it on the road.........

So that the gas station don't get into trouble, the fuel must be dispensed into a can or tank that would be used to haul the fuel to the off road vehicle it would be burned in. Dan

Well anyways, to further discuss the question irregardless of the intent of the original poster or his/her current status and whereabouts, i am curious to see the performance gains by balancing and blueprinting the engine and how this compares from a cost effective standpoint vs. adding nitrous.

The engine may need a rebuild anyways and then switch to non-computer ignition and carburetion.

Then again, if the engine has to come out, then yes it probably would be more cost effective to just swap a 4.3 v-6 or even 8 cyl small block............


2) P.S. Here nitrous is completely illegal---can't even transport it unless you have placards. But it's not enforced.

all odds,I dont think balancing and blue printing adds a lot of power compared to the cost and time.It does add reliability

That's seems to be true. i think the most cost effective thing to do in this case would probably be to find an s-10 with a 4.3 engine in it?

I understand untaxed fuel, but assumed fuel being sold from a gas station pump would be taxed same as any other 'over the road' fuel. At least that's how it was done in FL. Several stations had 100/110 octane fuel and it was totally legal to run on the street. Not to mention E85.

It depends on your definition of "great idea." I knew quite a few guys who built really loose engines...ran like crap off the bottle, but dang will nitrous ever seal up a set of rings. LOL Its a bad idea from that 2.8's perspective, but after a 6 pack it sounds like an awesome idea...especially if you want to drop a smallblock in there LOL

Ive got even money on the trans puking before the motor does though
