Nitrous and 93, Chevrolet, S10?
 
I don't know hardly anything about nitrous but I'm interested in finding out ****. Suppose I wanted to put nitrous on my 1993, Chevrolet S10, standard transmission, v6 2.8 liter. What would I need to put a nitrous system on it?

Any time N2O is used, the engine has to be in very good condition- good ring seal, tight bearings, good oil pressure, etc.

It's my personal opinion that using nitrous on your 2.8L V6 Chevy will prolly be the kiss of death. They are not a particularly strong engine.

If you are determined, there are kits available (Venom, Nitrous Express) for $600-$800.

So you think that the v6 2.8 is a bad idea?

You might get away w/a small hit of nitrous (50 hp max) if the engine is in good shape. But overall, it's not a great idea- in MY opinion.

Keep checking back- there's bound to be other opinions on this.

Ok thanks! Btw, I have know clue how much faster 50 horse is?

vinniekq2 10-20-2012 08:17 PM

50 horse power is not a speed.It is a huge increase in power for that engine in stock form.Look into kits like cobalt said,read the instructions,ask where you can get the bottle refilled,ask what a refill costs and how long the bottle lasts,also ask about expiry of the NO2 canister

Demented Soul 10-20-2012 08:42 PM

Well if the power increases then doesn't it have more potential to be alittle faster as well?

vinniekq2 10-20-2012 09:00 PM

I think you are thinking about acceleration not speed.If you add horse power and torque,then you will accelerate quicker to a point when traction becomes an issue.Maybe give a full explanation as to what you are trying to accomplish and we can give you a bunch of ideas.Then you pick out the plan that works best for you and your situation.Just remember,NO2 is not a magic part that makes something spectacular.It does make impressive power increases,but it has a big cost

The 4.3 V6 was available in your truck. The motor stands and et cetera are available from the junkyard, so putting in the 4.3L V6 could be an inexpensive swap.

There are also kits available to bolt in a 350 SBC engine in place of the 2.8L V6 for that matter. Either one of these options would blow the 2.8L away.

Just something to consider.

There are several s10 forums like http://www.s10forums.com/forums/, http://www.s10v8.com/, and others.

Punk. Too bad.

Anybody reading this and considering nitrous. It does not work out in small stock engines that well. My integra has a 1.8L AEMint/DCheader/Tanabe exh and kind of peppy. Pic in album. In the late 90's installed a single fog wet kit 50 and 75 hp jets. Not that impressive and not a big diffence in acceleration. Made 127 wheel hp Natural, and 170 wheel hp at 75hp jet shot on the chassis dyno. Limited at 7600rpm. After year 2000 the laws were enforced, and the bottle has not been racked in 10+ years.

Spinn, when you say "after 2000 the laws were enforced...", does that mean you could be cited for just having the system even though you weren't using it?

For any of you with a mind to actually install and use a nitrous oxide system, your first move should be to read a currently published book on the subject, such as this one....

spinn 10-22-2012 04:06 PM

That is correct, people were using a remote to crack the bottle valve. In the end of the 90's police enforced and ticketed for the bottle racked and filled. Did not matter if the valve was open and/or if the system was charged. Then early 00's people made fake sub boxes with bottles in them to hide. I was never into the nitrous scene that much. Really do not like giving the police a reason to disturb me. So my integra has the bottle removed. The solenoid box , and lines are all hooked up. My nozzle is underneath the plenum and cannot be seen from above.

Another thing they ticket is filling race gas directly to the vehicle at the pump. You have to pump into a gas can first.

Now the nitrous thing I can understand. Actually, I approve.

But pumping gas into a can first, THEN pour it into the car??? That's a foolish "law". Sounds like a lawsuit waiting to happen the first time someone gets burned from static lighting off the can of gas as it's being filled or while filling the car w/the can. I do not even see how it could be legal to require such a thing!
