Re: NITROUS PISTONS?

on a street car you don't want to run any higher than 10:1 comp. and they need to be forged. most people make nitrous application pistons

Re: NITROUS PISTONS?

actually i'll have to agree but the ratio has alot to do with the cam.. i've seen plenty of 11:1 street cars and then some 9.5:1 setups that wouldn't work..

static compression and dynamic compression aren't the same thing.
