Want to run a turbo with nitrous on the street but not a daily driver. How doable is that?

What are the road blocks to it?

Once upon a time in the sleeply little town of San Bernardino there was two guys named Nitrous Gary and Freaky Freddie -- They had a turbo Kawi 1000 (1260) with a turbo (Mr. Turbo) system -- They placed a nitrous bar (Old school system) across the inlet to the carb and had it setup for 100 HP -- This system worked very well and made their bikes some of the fastest in the land -- They made lots of money and both went to jail on Cocaine charges.

So the moral of the story is .. .. .. Some low tech stuff can haul some serious butt for not alot of bucks

What ever happened to Ray Walker? I loved his story and that video that someone posted of him at SAC, blowing flames every shift.

This is my street/strip bug with a 75 shot under the 750 Holley. I haven't sprayed it yet because I am trying to get used to the turbo. I have to change the head studs next because a cheap Chinese wastegate did not open. Once I get this done and the new Tial wastegate put on, I am going to start spraying it at low boost and work my way up until I get it where I want it.

Did someone say turbo's with nitrous? I was doing it back in the 80's with a 100 shot though two foggers.
I have a new fogger system for the car I am building now. :smooth:

Another reason for a little NOS at the carb -- chemical intercooler -- really helps drop the charge temp

Maybe the moral of the story should of been don't let all your large profits go up your nose and then you go buy more white stuff so you can sell more white stuff so more more white stuff goes up your nose until you sell more white stuff to someone with a blue uniform and then everything goes to . . . . . . . . .
