Nos is fun!

... And I want to play too.

Edelbrock sells a 350 dollar kit that includes all the hardware and a plate that bolts under the carb that mixes the extra fuel and NO2.

What are the limitations for NOS? I think I'd like to have the luxury, but I certainly don't want to kill my engine. This kit has rather low nozzle settings of 50, 75 and 100hp boosts. What do you have to look out for when you run this stuff?

Thanks for the help guys-

Detonation !!!! Most stock engines can handle a 100 shot. After that you better start building the motor. My son runs a 300 shot on his 406 Pontiac, but also has forged pistons, H-beam rods, 4 bolt studded mains and timing controls.

I'm glad to hear a holley performance kit is fun, you know "NOS". Nitrous is NO2, not NOS. I'm getting tired of ricers saying NOS!!!! It's nitrous or NO2!

huff.. puff.. huff.. puff....

and I'm tired of hearing people call "facial tissue" "Kleenex." The words are now synonymous. Get over it.

technically, your "87 442" has a computer and electronics that make it closer to a computer controlled "ricer" than my 77 bird.

Have fun ricin that thing... oh I mean racing...

Well if a 3,500 pound 442, or 4,500 pound cutlass is a ricer that is.

You guys are too funny!
For a small shot, nothing is needed. Although too many hits and it's going to wear down your stock motor either way. Nitrous is like any other HP maker, the more HP you make, the beefier the motor has to be to handle it. You can make 100 more horses to your stock block without beefing up the bottom end, but more than that and you should start looking into a better one. The same goes for nitrous, it's just eaiser to shoot more of it so that's where people get into trouble. The biggest down fall you hear about it is when people get greedy with it. Just keep it down until the block is ready to handle it, and everything should be fine.

So NOS shouldn't be used on a street ride, because you'll inevitably wear down the motor faster and decrease its life?

Or put a nice size hole in your piston. I'll stick with forced induction, if I could ever afford it

Doesn't NOS stand for New Old Stock in the classic car world?

The reason it shouldn't be used on the street is because it's illegal...
Yes it's going to decrease it's life, but every high performance part you put on your motor is. If you are looking for power, you can't think about the concequences, unless they mean explosion. I've never owned a car with nitrous, but I've felt the button once, and it's really one of the coolest things I've ever felt. I say go for it, but use it sparingly, and #1 SAFELY!

Hitting the button on a decent shot of NOS is literally like getting slammed in the back end by a truck. It is instantaneous and hard and sends a shock wave thru the car. I once hit the button with 4 people in my car doing 50 and got totally sideways with large rear tires. I also spun a rod bearing in the same engine.

I MAY put a small 75hp shot on my 454 but we'll see.

Here's an interesting article I found today http://www.chevyhiperformance.com/te.../148_0303_n20/ . 599 horsepower on a stock bottom end and pistons isn't too bad.
