Bird cage the inner parts of the car.
It's not stock fox everything has been done .. i'll post pics up soon

There's some real good Nitrous guys over on the yellow bullet site and they have a lot more experience. You might hit them up over there.

Trophies are pretty easy to come by in Bracket racing.. The "heads up" classes have the fastest and best cars.

When using nitrous and 10.60:1 cr and it don't matter where or how much or how often,, you want fuel that will not detonate.

What you can actually get away with, epends on a lot of factors. If you have to ask,,, you are best to not skimp on the quality of the fuel in the tank, when- and how ever using nitrous.

Cause when you get it just a little bit wrong. $$$$Its not going to be pretty$$$$.

I built my dedicated nitrous real street pump gas nitrous motor with a intended conservative 9.8:1 cr just for this purpose.
Reliable and powerfull goof proof running on nitrous, on premimum pump gas. go real fast without hurting parts. (I've been doing this a long time and have the trophies to prove it.)

You are on/near the practical naturally aspirated edge already for pump gas. Get used to putting good stuff in the tank when ever you run nitrous on that motor.
The money you spend on high octane gas is well worth it- if engine life matters to you.

With nitrous, quality gasoline is your best friend.
And wether you have a stock block or what ever else will not change that.

The key to successful nitrous and supercharger engines is staying well within the laws of physics.
Engines stay together when ever you do. And fly apart real quick when ever you don't.
The quality of the fuel used is most critical. Race gas is cheaper than pistons.
Alight.. so since my CR is higher a small shot of nitrous is more efficient...I was thinking about a power shot system fixed shot I've heard mixed stuff about it...I wasnt planning on spraying more than 150 to be honest with you..But yes! I will use race gas when using nitrous....I know run the carb little fatter and retard the timing...But when using race gas on a street pump gas motor.... does it effect anything else?? do i have to re-tune the motor for this?
Thanks again

Maybe I wouldnt know what to do with the math,true.Maybe only you know what to do with the math?
I say the following statement should not be posted for us stupid people ,as you are calling us.


"Stay within the laws of physics and it will make a ton of reliable power
and not come unglued."

Just like a blower motor.

this is what i really want to know
If you not Familiar with using the bottle start out small and work your way up. My buddies in Texas are big into it and have great luck and really haul the mail. Even the best nitrous guys have cough's now and then and it's not pretty when it happens.

ya i will my next build for sure!
i just had to deal with what i had already built...so i was thinking nitrous would be my best bet for low buck hp...is the 100hp powershot fixed plate system good? or should i just get adjustable plate system?
Thanks for the tips

Detonate...yes its a bad deal. Most of the problems I've seen where caused by a fuel pump issue. Very important to build a "fail proof" fuel system. If your fuel pressure varies you will melt parts. A stuck solenoid will cause thing to get pretty exciting also.

The total system on my car is 900+ HP capable and did not cost a lot.
