Chief will beat the Sonoma and the rightful power adder will take it's crown on the reality TV sponsored throne.

And it's a better love story then Twilight.

With that setup, I'd say you have a 73.8% chance of blowing the welds on your intake.

SwAZy McScrotum Yeah, that's a big no no..but that's what alot of old school guys do.
Get caught heating that way by tech at the strip and you'll catch some shit. Because of course there were some dumbasses in history that held a flame in place long enough to warp the bottle and eventually pop. But I can't say I've never heated a bottle that way. It's only cold enough to need a heater maybe a month out of the year down here, so I never think to keep one in the trunk, but then there's that rare frigid night where pressure was too low, so I had to wave a torch over it for a second.

kmac1622 I saw that episode of street outlaws where far truck got a new motor and they were heating the bottle with a propane torch. I literally pooped my pants.

jbarth73 I was in Autozone a long time ago an a teenage kid was buying a bottle of this for his Honda thought it was going to add power because it was " NOS " what a dumbass lol

RDY4WAR I'm not a hater of nitrous. It's just that everything nitrous can do, superchargers and turbos can do better. Nitrous serves it's purpose but it's not the king of power adders like some people make it out to be.

SwAZy McScrotum Great point boss.

I like to look at nitrous as a special treat.
Every 1/4 mile pass on spray is like getting some vag.
It's like taking a girl out on a date. You get laid afterwards, and that 10 seconds of pure pleasure when you bust that nut is totally worth the 50-75 dollars you had to spend on dinner.

Feeling that instant 50% (give or take) increase in torque for a brief moment during a race gives me that same feeling.

07 Boss Nitrous has a single purpose and it fulfills it's intended purpose extremely well. No you can't use it all the time but it was not meant to be either. My DR's are the best street tire for getting down the road from a dig. Can I use that advantage all the time. No. I'm sure as heck not going to race you down PCH. So to talk about nitrous outside of the box it was meant to be used for is like talking about how shitty my MT streets are for autoX.

SwAZy McScrotum I was more talking about before building.
Like the goes who just crank up the boost on a stock motor or simply throw in some forged internals and cram as much boost in as possible.


I love turbos, so don't think I'm biased... I'm just making points, same as you.

Huh? The motor I'm building for my car is over 11:1 static compression and will be seeing 30+psi. It'll make good power still without the boost. The more power you make off boost, the more you'll make with it.

SwAZy McScrotum All this talk about bottle heating. I live in the fucking desert. I can count the times I've had to use a bottle heater on one hand.

While staging, you're having to make sure line pressure is good, purge the system, etc... I just grab the staging brake, bump into the lights, 2-step, and go.

Let's say you make 8 passes that day down the 1/4 mile, 4 passes per 10lb bottle (cause more than that and you're losing power and ET on the same bottle). At $4-5 a pound, that's $50-60 of nitrous you just burned through. Meanwhile, my turbo cost me nothing extra. We burned through similar amount of fuel, same type of fuel, etc... Of those 8 passes, your nitrous car is going to start having some issues after that 4th pass on the same bottle as the pressure starts falling off more and more with the bottle going empty and your ET and MPH suffer. My turbo car on the other hand does the same thing every pass.

Let's say on one or two passes, you have a mental lapse and forget to turn on the nitrous. My turbo takes that user error out of the equation and won me a couple easy races. There's always a couple people that make that mistake every time I'm at the track. If I want more power from my turbo, I can push a button a couple times on my controller for more boost and more power. Meanwhile, you have to pull your car off to the side and change out parts.

Let's take both of our cars out on the street. We're on on-ramps getting on the highway and it's short one so we want to get up to 65-70mph fast to blend into traffic. With my turbo, I can ease the throttle down a little bit, make a few pounds of boost, and be right up to speed in no time. Your on/off switch like nitrous system can't do that, even if you had it primed/purged and ready to go. We're cruising down the interstate and get stuck behind an truck going 55mph. I can leave my car in 5th gear, put the throttle down halfway to build a little boost, and zip right on around without downshifting or taking the motor over 2,500rpm. Your nitrous can't do that. We're driving along and an Evo pulls up by us wanting to race. Oh no, your nitrous bottle isn't heated up, system isn't purged, etc... well, my turbo is. Turn the camera on and watch as the turbo cars show you the satisfaction of always having full power on tap at anytime.

I'll take that challenge.
