    Yeah, I got there late, but still got some decent shots. I guess your usual Mustangs and Camaros had already gone, which was kind of convenient! :D

    Cute little Fiat.

    This is the diesel dragster that my college's diesel program works on. Runs 10.3 1/4's. My roommate is friends with the head of the program.

    That dragster is cool. It looks like it has air disk brakes. There is two old trucks at work that have the same motor in them supercharged/turbocharged Detroit's.
    I like the 40' Ford the best.

    Love that detroit dragster. Is that an 8V71? What kind of turbos are those?

    I thought nitrous was for gas and propane for diesel? Funny haha?

    no nitrous is for both, you just got confused. Propane helps burn what fuel is there, it acts as a catalyst to burn the diesel fuel. Nitrous adds more oxygen to the mixture. Complete diesel fuel combustion + More oxygen + Twin Turbos = POWER... Though I'd expect a bit more out of the thing. Should have gotten a V12, loose the blower and go Quad Turbo :bow:

    No can lose the blower. It's a two stroke motor and the blower is used to evacuate spent air when the piston is at the bottom of the stroke. You could not even get the engine started. The exhaust would not exit the cylinders properly. (exhaust would even come out the ports, too... if the engine even fired at all.) You need a source of positive airflow at starting, idle, and running, up to the point the turbo(s) can provide sufficient boost to run.

    Some of the later two stroke 12V and 16V710s (which is 710 cubic inches per cylinder) didn't have a blower but used geared turbos that would produce positive pressure at startup and disengaged to work as a normal turbo after the engine was running.
