    I just put a NOS kit on my 350 TBI this past weekend. I was just wondering how many other people have put nitrous on their trucks?

    I had it on a 95 mustang, but I dont understand the point in putting it on a 4x4.

    Quick shot pulses are great for mudding/hill climbs where you need wheel speed. Or, just to freak out the kid next to you in slammed ricer w/ the coffee can muffler. /forums/images/graemlins/rotfl.gif

    hope its a smaller shot, and that you dont plan on using it much. the stock pistons can only handle so much no2, and can so many times. make sure youre getting plenty of extra fuel when you on the spray too.

    Whenever I build a serious wheeling rig(After College) Im going to look into the area of a 50 shot of Nitrous nothing extreme. I may go to a 100 shot if I decide on a big block, I dont see a point in putting so large of a shot into a motor that cannot handle it. Like a 250 shot in a Civic with a 4 banger

    [/ QUOTE ] Actually it cools incoming air and fuel to help squeeze more in. The engine is actually the part that does the sucking.

    [/ QUOTE ] On the rocks I bet it would be useless besides giving a power surge and just busting parts.

    For guys like me that run mud, climb hills, and do mud racing(soon I hope on the racing) it works GREAT!. It is probably best for racing, and regardless if it's in a 4x4 racing through mud to the finish line or a mustang racing for the traps it does the same thing...get you there quicker. /forums/images/graemlins/thumb.gif

    nobody has ever tried to spray no2 into an automotive engine as far as i know. plenty have injected n2o though, and contrary to popular belief, a stock engine can take a LOT of nirtous with the proper preparations and tuning.

    Pretty much the only limiting factor to how much N20 is your bottem end and the amount of fuel you can pump in.

    I am probably gonna spray a 100 shot and it will handle it just fine. I have a better fuel pump, and window switch and fuel and nitrous gauges. So many people think that nitrous means instant death to a motor, not true, most people that say that have no experience with N2O, they are just repeating what they have heard.

    And the purpose of it is to give more power, just like a cam and set of heads, but without the hassle and driveability problems, or a big block swap without the money and time.

    I will use the nitrous for mud runs, spraying ricers and hopefully maybe a V6 mustang or two, and when I take it to the track, yes I take my truck to the track.

    How much horsepower do you think that you are pushing?

    Do you have any problems with breakage in the 60/14 combo?

    I assume that you have a very built 400, how does it hold up?
