Nitrous Oxide anybody?
Have many books and a ton of magazine articles on power additives from turbo's, superchargers, and nitrous Oxide.
I plan on using a 125-150 HP kit on my build, using forged rods/pistons because I am building for big HP to begin with, but know even cast pistons will be just fine in the 100 HP -125 HP kits.
Nitrous works best on low compression engines, 8.0-9.0 range. It really wakes them up. It would seem to make a lot of sense to me to have a mildly built street 400 CI 0r 455 CI, add the nitrous, and have an engine that will push into the 450-500 HP range with gobs of added torque, at a push of the button.
My question: Any of you have experiences using nitrous on your Pontiac? Again, see it used in magazine cars, but don't know of any actual first hand users with Pontiacs.
