Re: Turbo or nos

Nitrous is ultimately cheaper than a TC system.

In all honesty though I'd probably spend the 2200 for a Paxton or vortech blower. Spray would run around 8ish with everything and bottle filled. Once a 75hp shot gets slow you'll want a 125 and it don't stop. Refills get high

Re: Turbo or nos

Nitrous is so much cheaper than a Turbo or SC and can give over 100+ HP... But a Turbo and SC will always give more power, for 5x the price though. And remember that you have to refill nitrous bottles (but that is actually pretty cheap)

If funds are tight go Nitrous, if you have money then do SC or Turbo. If you have no budget then do Combo-Charging with Nitrous!!!!

With nitrous stock bottom end will hold a 150shot no problem all day long as long as its tuned properly. Anything bigger forged internals is needed.

Lmao.. I've had a 250 pill on a stock bottom end!!! These 5.0's can take a beating depending how old, how well built, and some food rings and gaskets... I say spray it with a 100 shot..

I'd run a compression test to determine what kind of shape the engine is in.
Keep it properly tuned for nitrous, don't go over 450-500 HP total and you should be ok.
However, experiences and results vary. You may be able to go way over that and you may blow the engine with a 75 shot. You never really know what someone else may have done to the engine before you got it.

What kind of "food" rings do you use? I like the onion rings myself, but the NOS tends to blow them apart.

Well Travis idk but I'll tell you this much. I have a 5 speed as well. And I've used nitrous before on my auto car. But. Nitrous on a stick makes me nervous. Because the way I've always hooked it up was a arming switch and a WOT switch under the gas pedal or under the hood at the throttle linkage. And I had a nitrous mastermind by Jacobs hooked up with it so one you hit the gas it sprays one stage until its done and that's it cause your foot never comes off floor until you cross the finish line. And what makes me nervous is in a 5 speed every time you shift you let off gas and hit it again. And seems like every time you shift and go back to WOT it would spray again and that would be fine with a very well built motor but with a stock rotating assembly it makes me nervous to shoot it that much back to back. Now all this is just my opinion don't know if thats how it work. But that's why I pretty much all but decided to go with a S/C or turbo set up. May or may not help but I'm sure someone else well set up and give you better in site

---------- Post added at 06:57 AM ---------- Previous post was at 06:52 AM ----------

But I will be doin more research because like I said all but decided. Because I still have my bottle and thinking about it. So if I can figure out how to only shoot it with a single stage instead of a 3 stage or more I might just put the juice in my five speed

That's some good points you have cap. I think the best way for a manual car might just be to have a button for it instead of a wot switch. But I'm not to familiar with setting up a nitrous system.

+1
A micro-switch activated by the throttle linkage or foot pedal controlling the nitrous is the way to go.
That way when you get off the gas the nitrous also shuts down, otherwise....BOOM!

I've run NOS, a superchargers and turbochargers over the years. Most here have confirmed that NOS is the most cost effective power adder albeit you have to deal with bottle re-fills and changing your tune if you want to spray it... Someone mentioned NOS with a manual and their concerns. I've had similar concerns and my approach has been to use a double switch to activate. First switch-WOT. Second switch-RPM window switch. Id set the window switch to turn off the NOS a good 200-500 rpm below your shift point. So in a GT you'd change your tune to one that is pre-set for the shot. Open the bottle. Arm the system. As you race once both the 1st and 2nd switches are on, it sprays but once the top of the window is eclipsed then it stops spraying even though you are still WOT. Shift. And so on. Anything can happen but I believe this to be a safe way to spray a manual car. JMS Chip has a nice kit, check them out! Their kit has a controller that handles both switches for you in one controller. Good luck!

Good info, thank you.


I'd forgotten about the RPM activated window switches.
