Well, to start off, you could find most of your answers if you browsed the nitrous forum, but i'll tackle as much as i can for ya.rony said:(ignored on nitrous forum)
little n2o knowledge please
don't know much about n2o, know it can fuck up your car and something about it helping combustion or some shit like that. i'm getting a prelude soon and am planning on going with as much all motor as possible with the juice as a "juce in case" but before i decide to go with this path i'd like to know more about it. things like what needs to be reinforced to make sure i don't kill my car... plugs, pistons, etc.. i want to start off with a 50-75 shot but to eventually be able to run a 150 shot... crazy? gimme some feedback.. try to be detailed please cause i'm pretty much a newbie at n2o...
also what type of power would i be able to get all motor withought sacrificing the performance of the n2o... like if i get high compression pistons couldn't that be bad when spraying..? bad mixture, etc... any help... comments...
There's a bunch of different ways you can go. First you have to decide what type of kit you are going to get. you have to consider all the different factors though. when are you planning on running that 150 shot? if youre going to be running it soon (like within a half a year or so) then you should wait till you have your motor built up, and then go direct port. or, what i would suggest, is buy a dry kit right now (i prefer zex, you can get one for $435 at www.evanshondaspecialist.com ) and run a 55-65-75 shot. Our stock blocks can handle up to a 75 shot without a problem. Then you can get used to the nitrous, get a feel for what you want, if you really want the 150shot etc. Then if you decide to go with the bigger shot, sell your dry kit and go direct port (After you build up your shit first) Nitrous LOVES high compression, so higher compression pistons = dope. I'll see if i can make up this list of what you need for each shot:
50-55 shot - 1-step colder spark plugs
65 shot - 1-step colder plugs & retard your timing 2 degrees
75 shot - 1 step colder plugs, retard your timing 4 degrees, probably time for an aftermarket clutch too.
anything above a 75 shot, and youre going to want to start building up your block (in my opinion, some people spray 80-100 on the stock block). you will DEFINATELY need to ugrade your fuel system: pump, injectors, etc. youll need a new clutch, plugs and all that other biz.
You could just start out with a direct port kit, but the problem is its actually not that safe to run the lowest shot possible, because the jets are so small. with most dry kits, you have one nozzle that sprays into your intake. with a direct port kit, you have a nitrous/fuel mixture sprayed into each cylinder through your intake manifold, so you have a more evenly distributed mix. But, say youre spraying an 80 shot, thats a 20 shot per each nozzle, and that means the jets are like microscopic. if a little particle of whatever gets in the way, its gonna screw up your mix.
One of the main things you have to worry about with nitrous is detonation. You dont want to be running lean. the zex kit is the safest among dry kits because you run a little bit richer than the others (safer = smarter) remember safety should come first, you dont want to blow your engine. There are also some rules you need to know about. Dont spray for longer than 15 seconds. Dont spray under 3000rpms. Dont spray at really high speeds. If you let the temp get too high, youre going to melt something.
The Zex kit is great. It's very very easy to install. You CAN and WILL install it yourself (its that easy). It is inexpensive (if you get it at the right place. And its safe. As long as you have colder spark plugs (you can get the zex plugs, or ngk's one step colder) and the proper engine retard, you can spray all day and all night without worries.
I guess a lot of what you should do depends on how much money you have. reply back with some more details on what you want, and any questions you have. my post is getting too unorganized to keep going.
