Can you use nitrous with a carburetor?
On carbureted engines, nitrous is a stand alone system. In other words, you don’t have to do any carb jetting or tuning. The engine runs exactly as it does before you install the system. When you activate the nitrous, it takes care of itself.
How much HP does a 100 shot of nitrous add?
What is a “shot” and how do I determine how much I need? Maxwell: A “shot” is typically how much horsepower the nitrous system is adding to the engine. For instance, a “hundred shot” is adding 100 flywheel horsepower on top of what the engine makes normally.
How much fuel pressure is required for a 150 shot of nitrous?
Nitrous systems require a minimum amount of fuel pressure to work properly. NOS systems, for example, require 5.5 to 6 psi of pressure. However, the more fuel you can feed the engine, the more power it can make.
Does nitrous hurt your engine?
Nitrous oxide is no more damaging to your engine than any other modification by itself, but like a turbo kit or add-on supercharger, the potential for blowing your engine goes up significantly due to the enormous amount of additional stress being put on your engine and the chances of running lean or experiencing pre-
How long will a 10 lb bottle of nitrous last?
I’d say it’s around 1lb of N2O for every 10 seconds of 100 shot. So a 10lb should last around 100 seconds, give or take.
What’s better wet or dry nitrous?
Dry nitrous kits are a great first step and require less work for installation and a small bump in power output. A wet nitrous kit will deliver a fuel/nitrous oxide mixture into your intake tract.
How much HP can nitrous add?
If you’re wondering what’s the easiest and cheapest way to add a lot of horsepower to your engine, then we have the answer: nitrous oxide. Yep, for less than $500 you can add 100 to 200 hp to your engine using common hand tools and without breaking a sweat.
How much HP does a 75 shot of nitrous give you?
To answer your original question, a 75 wet shot from zex will be roughly 65-70 hp to the rear wheels and around 80-90 tq.
Can you run nitrous without a tune?
You can run up to a 100 shot without a tune. Anymore you would want a tune and a better fuel pump. I‘ve heard of people running 125 jet on stock fuel system and had no issues. I would run a step colder plug to be safe though.
What should nitrous pressure be?
Most nitrous companies recommend a nitrous bottle pressure around 900-950 PSI, and many racers run upwards of 1000 PSI depending on the volume they are using and other factors.
Is nitrous better than Turbo?
Nitrous is also quite a bit easier to tune. If you have a target of, say, 2,000 horsepower, it is definitely going to be less expensive to get there with a nitrous setup than it would be with turbos.
How much does it cost to fill a 10lb nitrous bottle?
27.5 dollars for a 10 lbs bottle.
Why do you need to purge nitrous?
The purpose of a nitrous purge is to ensure that the correct amount of nitrous oxide is delivered the moment the system is activated as nitrous and fuel jets are sized to produce correct air / fuel ratios, and as liquid nitrous is denser than gaseous nitrous, any nitrous vapor in the lines will cause the car to “bog”
