It's like anything else, if set up properly it will work great. This is another subject I want to learn more about. Hey Jeff, can I call and pick your brain sometime?

The only thing you'll be "picking" is pieces of your engine off the track, and then your nose as you stand there wondering why you ever did something so dumb as to put nitrous on your ACVW.

;D ;D ;D

I've been playing with nitrous for several years. Most of the parts I have broken were NOT the result of using nitrous, it was the fact that i did not use parts capable of handling the TOTAL HP made.

I did discover that STOCK connecting rods will take the abuse of 300 total hp.

Ain't that the truth!!!

Jeff is always a big help...as well as Dominik Luppino, Carl Nolen, Troy Godwin, Lloyd Mosher...I even hunted down Ray Medrano to pick his brain. I did a lot of homework before I hit the button and have not looked back. I did break some stuff early this year but I don't blame the go-go juice...it was the parts in my motor that were initially set up for a healthy street motor. My new motor has the high end parts in it to take the extra abuse of 150+ shot. One thing I will suggest is add safety devices on it...the small investment will save lots of $$ in the long run.

I use this system with the optional fuel pressure switch right at the fuel solenoid...I run two seperate Holley "Blue" fuel pumps and 3/8" fuel lines...one for the carbs and the other for the N2O system. I will soon be adding an MSD RPM window controller that will only allow the system to operate between a certain RPM range just incase I miss a shift I will not hit the limiter while on the juice.
